Longing for God in a Railway Station

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

A late evening in 2013.

In the Gospel for the First Monday of Advent, we have one of the best examples of this: we cannot now fail to see the parallel between the centurion’s words to Jesus and those we say after the priest invites us to Communion: ‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof . . . just give the word and my servant will cured / but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.’ Read more
