That we might celebrate, that we might dance

Gospel: Lk 7:31-35: the asceticism of John, the freedom of the Son of man who eats and drinks with publicans and sinners.

Madeleine Delbrel, French poet, atheist and then mystic, and today Servant of god, wrote in the 1950s: "Lord, grant that we may live our life as a feast without end in which our encounter with you is constantly renewed, that we may live our life as a dance." ("Signore, concedici di vivere la nostra vita come una festa senza fine nella quale il nostro incontro con te si rinnova, vivere la nostra vita come un ballo, come una danza.")
