Day behind here, but still worth the read, especially knowing that this excerpt comes from a book-length essay Hemmerle gave to Hans Urs von Balthasar for his birthday! How sweet is that!
We read Church Life Journal every day and suggest you do, too.
In that Jesus Christ announces and brings the dominion of God, and in that we encounter this dominion in him, a radical, unreserved communication takes place between God and us. He himself shares in Jesus all of what is ours and all of what is his. Nothing of his is left outside the gift which he gives us in Jesus Christ; nothing of ours is left outside history, which is God’s own history.
