Overview

In Accepting the Mystery, Cardinal Walter Kasper shares insightful reflections on the profound lessons present in the anticipation and celebration of Christmas. Kasper guides readers through the season of Advent to the Epiphany using scripture to cast light on important themes such as repentance and the mystery of grace. Because of Gods victorious grace, we can take up the Christmas message of the angel that night in Bethlehem, and we can follow the star that leads us to worship the Son of God.
