Caryll Houselander (1901-1954) wrote the following reflections in the early/mid 1940’s.
“We live in an age of impatience, an age which in everything, from learning the ABC to industry, tries to cut out and do away with the natural season of growth. That is why so much in our life is abortive. We ought to let everything grow in us, as Christ grew in Mary….. No man should ever make anything except in the spirit in which a woman bears a child, in the spirit in which Christ was formed in Mary’s womb, in the love with which God created the world.”
“In this contemplation there is great virtue in practicing patience in small things until the habit of Advent returns to us.”
