"Every act of love


"Every act of love,

every deed done in Christ and by the Spirit,

every work of true creativity?

doing justice, making peace, healing families,

resisting temptation, seeking and winning true freedom?

is an earthly event in a long history of things

that implement Jesus? own resurrection

and anticipate the final new creation

and act as signposts of hope,

pointing back to the first and on to the second."
