ADVENT quote: … arid deserts, hope & love…

Here’s a reflective quote for today (with photos to go with…)

WB St Georges overview

“Our brokenness is the wound through which the full power of God

can penetrate our being

and transfigure us in God….

Yes, through our wounds

the power of God can penetrate us

and become like rivers of living water

to irrigate the arid earth within us.

Thus we may irrigate the arid earth of others,

so that hope and love are reborn.”

(Jean Vanier)
