Sabbath Evenings – Christmas as the Irrational Season with Madeleine L’Engle

December 19, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments


This is the irrational season

When love blooms bright and wild.

Had Mary been filled with reason

There’d have been no room for the child.

—Madeleine L’Engle, , The Irrational Season, New York, Seabury Press, 1977, p.27.

Two thousand years ago a young girl bore a child as helpless as any child, a child who would show us the greatest majesty in weakness, a child whose growing up was then, and always will be, out of tune with the tenor of the times.

—Madeleine L’Engle, , The Irrational Season, New York, Seabury Press, 1977, p.26.
