Stumps and stars, lions and lambs, angels and adders, cattle and children – all live together peacefully on the holy mountain in the glorious kingdom that is the reign of God inaugurated with the coming of the Christ. The eleventh chapter of the Book of the Prophet Isaiah and first two chapters of the Gospel of Matthew offer us these familiar and dearly loved Advent visions which picture a world already redeemed, restored and reconciled because our all good God has given us Jesus. You are invited to come to the quiet of these retreat days and join with others in reflecting on and praying with these beautiful images of Incarnation.
