The Burning Babe

To celebrate this holy day, we are posting two meditations on the Incarnation by the Jesuit poet and martyr Robert Southwell. Blessings upon all our readers in this Christmas season.

The Death of God

The Death of God

This classic prayer of the Church, which pictures Jesus addressing the crowd which called for His death, speaks to every sinner. It is the perfect meditation for this, the most solemn day of the year:

I daresay that the vice of rashness has pervaded much of the conservative movement in America (as it once did right-wing movements in Europe). In fact, it has almost destroyed that movement.

The experience, I must warn you, will prove depressing.
