The Magnificat: The Manger and the Cross

4th Sunday of Advent, Sunday, December 22nd, 2019

The songs of Advent and the carols of Christmas will give way to the Cross of Calvary. There is an interesting thing in Bjorn Thorkelson’s painting. Both the manger and the shadow of the Cross are empty. Neither Christmas nor Good Friday has the last word. Death and Despair never have the last word. Easter does. “Because I live, you shall live also,” (John 14:19)
