“If you keep the Word of God in this way, you will be kept by It. The Son with the Father will come to you. The great prophet who will renew Jerusalem will come and He will make everything new. The effect of His coming will be that just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.”
Prepare for Christmas with Fr Epeli and the wisdom of the saints: this Advent reflection is a sermon by St Bernard and appears in the Office of Readings.(4:56)
