It seems that lots of people today not only know God, but they also seem to possess God. They’ve got God in their pocket. I once rejected Christianity because, in part, Christians seemed to possess God. How is that possible? I mean, how can God be possessed? At best, all we can do, as Merton suggested, is wait for God. Once a year, during Advent, we’re reminded of that simple reality.
