Now and Then

Great words from Fr. Hans Urs von Balthalsar about Jesus meeting us where we are, yet moving us to the fullness of salvation....

....Christ became both things [the way and the goal] for us simultaneously. For his vitality consists in this: that he always stands at the level of the person he is educating and yet always is to be found as well at [as!] the final goal of his education. He walks along with the disciples toward Emmaus; but as they walk they discover that he is already reposing in the assurance of the goal. He is the Way, yet also the Truth, and, for that very reason, the Life.

In this Easter season we follow the One who both died for us and rose from the dead. He is with us even as He goes ahead of us. Hallelujah! What a Savior!
