Speaking at a day of prayer, Richard Rohr says, “Advent is not about a sentimental waiting for the baby Jesus.” He asks listeners to focus expectations and anticipation on “the adult Christ, the cosmic Christ,” the Lord who challenges us to empty ourselves, to lose ourselves, to surrender. This is the Jesus whom we invite to come into our hearts at Christmas and throughout our lives.

Universal Christ & This
Christianity will reform through what Rohr (and Christ Jesus) calls “Kingdom People.” Near the end of the recording Father Rohr gives us guidance on how to detach from the social matrix that we think is our identity. This recording is not merely cerebral, but has the potential to be spiritually transformative. No need to wait for Advent. Any time of year and life is appropriate to listen.
