Incarnation is Everywhere is an expression of the deep joys and insights I’ve found in faith, family, literature, philosophy, art, science, history, and the natural world.
To say that the incarnation is everywhere is an observation that erupts from mystical prayer and contemplation: to see the Christ, the Logos, the Ordering Principle working in all of creation, drawing all things to himself: “that God may be all in all” (1 Corinthians 15). This awareness is not reserved for the spiritual elite, but is our birthright as children of the God who created all things out of nothing and is always present in the holy ordinary of our daily life. It does not deny the existence of evil, of suffering, of darkness, but instead gazes deeply upon them through an eschatological lens: in the end, God will be all in all.
I write from my own Catholic perspective, and in following the wisdom of the Ancient Mothers and Fathers, try to remain open to the True, the Good, and the Beautiful in every religious and spiritual expression. Thank you for reading.
I’ve written for US Catholic, God in All Things, Millennium Journal, US Catholic Journal, and the Leaven Catholic Newspaper.
