The Language of Renewal

Living between the resurrection of Jesus and the final coming together of all things in heaven and earth means celebrating God’s healing of this world not his abandoning of it; God’s reclaiming of space as heaven and earth intersect once more; God’s redeeming of time as years, weeks, and days speak the language of renewal; and God’s redeeming of matter itself, in the sacraments, which point in turn to the renewal of the lives that are washed in baptism and fed with the Eucharist.
