Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri.

The wolf shall be a guest of the lamb. The leopard shall lie down with the kid. The calf and the young lion shall browse together. The cow and the bear shall be neighbors. The lion shall eat hay like the ox. The baby shall play by the cobra’s den. The child lay his hand on the adder’s lair. These seem like impossible things. Unbelievable, magical thinking. But the reality is that when we take seriously what God can do, amazing things do indeed happen. If you take Advent seriously, you too can expect the impossible.
