Sponsa Christi December 24th, 2012
Sr. Cecilia Maria has been treating us to some of her artwork during this Advent Season. The Advent hymn “In the Bleak Midwinter” written by Christina Rossetti in 1872 contains a wealth of meaning for Sister. Last year she drew these chalk drawings. Each week of Advent she has posted one of these images in our main hallway along with verses from Scripture, Saints and the Catechism of the Catholic Church for our Advent reflection.
Adam and Eve meet the New Adam and the New Eve…
This reminds me of the stunning phrase from the Easter Exultet… “O happy fault, O necessary sin of Adam, which gained for us to great a Redeemer.” And we might add… O happy fault, o necessary sin of Eve, which gained for us so great a Co-redeemer!
May you all have the most glorious Christmas ever!
