This joy in God, this freedom which raises us in faith and in hope above the bitter struggle that is our lot caught between the flesh and the Law, this is the new canticle in which we join with the blessed angels and the saints in praising God.
Let us not then darken the joy of Christ’s victory by remaining in captivity and in darkness, but let us declare His power, by living as free persons who have been called by Him out of darkness into His admirable light. Thomas Merton. Seasons of Celebration, p. 157.
