responding to the christmas mystery

So it seems that in reading Evelyn Underhill below, and seeing the fullness of the Christmas mystery as nativity and epiphany, the human response to this reality is grounded in the experiences of vision and vocation. Of course, the danger is that we have separated the two---vision as a spiritual experience, as if spiritually can be separated from the material, and vocation as activism viewed as a means to an end. The Christmas mystery in all of its fullness gives birth to the possibility of an integrated life, vision and vocation held together in tension, the word made flesh, full of grace and truth.
