From Rev. Thierry de Roucy’s homily at the St James Cathedral
on December 19th
It has been weeks,
It has been months,
It has been years,
It has been centuries
that this cry of ours has been mounting up:
“Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down!”
We cry for a Savior, we cry for a Presence.
In New York City, our city, this cry is ever-present:
Some cry out loud;
Some others cry silently, in the depths of their hearts:
a cry nobody hears any more.
They all await a Visitation;
Every single of their days is a day of Advent…
May they all become days of Christmas, days of Visitation!
