Stoking the Advent Flame by Snuffing Out Fear

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's within everyone.
And as we let our light shine
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.

-  Nelson Mandela, quoted in Lost in Wonder: Rediscovering the Spiritual Art of Attentiveness by Esther de Waal ( Collegeville , Minn. : The Liturgical Press, 2003).
