Mere Christianity: Timely Truth for a Hurting World

Mere Christianity, Episode 27 ~ Book 4, Chapters 5, 6, & 7: The Obstinate Toy Soldiers, Two Notes, and Let's Pretend

May 26, 2021 Speaker: The Rev. Brian K. McGreevy Series: Mere Christianity

These chapters of Book 4 focus on how the begotten spiritual life of God is given to us through the wondrous miracle of the Incarnation, and how that new life can be lived into by beginning to practice those qualities and habits that are commanded in the Scriptures regardless of whether we "feel" them at the moment.
Latin text
O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
iacentem in praesepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
meruerunt portare
Dominum Iesum Christum.
Alleluia!
English translation
O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the newborn Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Alleluia!
