Christ Came Out of This World, and Now All is Christ-Soaked

Recently I read in Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations this beautiful inspiration: “Instead of saying that God came into the world through Jesus, maybe it would be better to say that Jesus come out of an already Christ-soaked world. The second Incarnation flowed out of the first, out of God’s loving union with physical creation.”  What a perfect phrase: “Christ-soaked”! Today when I look outside, I will try to see the trees and all other created things as “Christ-soaked.” Then when I look inside, I need to realize everything there is Christ-soaked, too. (Not nearly as obvious, but an impetus to clean m room.)  I am almost too shy to claim that I, too, am Christ-soaked. But I am! And so are you!
