HIS [Christ’s] IS A CALL THAT FREES. … The call is not an ending but a beginning. The birth of the baby invites us into a search. I think the simple truth that is being held out … is not so much a life lived as though all the answers were given, but a life lived as though all our answers are only gateways into deeper levels of answering, which in turn lead us into mystery where all answers give way to bended knee and adoration and praise.
