Year C - Advent 4 or Needed Change 4
December 20, 2015
Imagine that the fact of your body is sufficient proof of concept that you carry authority within and throughout your engagements with others so no certificate of sacrifice is needed to validate both your intention and action to live gracefully in the midst of a simply ordinary day.
You and I, with the gift of a body, join Jesus and prophets down through the years with the ability to use it without clinging to it. Brother Ass, as Francis and others have referred to their bodies, can be both stubborn and revelatory, which is why we need a communal setting in which our respective bodies might support and correct one another. It is this community that becomes revolutionary as it readjusts to new needs and resources within the body and will do so quite dramatically if injustice goes on long enough.
Enjoy pulling the powerful from their thrones and, in turn, being pulled from your privilege. It is going to happen eventually, so enjoying the process of setting things right as well as having yourself set right is a key element in a life that turns light to life and life to love/intention to action.
