The truth is, we all need a savior, because the world isn’t all that we know it can be. It wasn’t then and it’s not now. It wasn’t for Isaiah, and it isn’t for us. It wasn’t for the psalmist, and it isn’t for us. Life isn’t what we frequently pretend it to be; nor is the world. And that’s the whole point of Christmas.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
