Ilia’s Letter for Support

Radical Incarnation: A Christmas Appeal

Radical Incarnation: A Christmas Appeal

by Ilia Delio, OSF

We are once again in the season of waiting—patient waiting—a virtue the consumer culture has abandoned. However, we are not waiting for something but for someone; we are waiting for God to arrive in the person of Jesus Christ.

But wait—didn’t God already come in the birth of Jesus?  Isn’t this the heart of Christmas? So what are we waiting for?  When I ask this question to different people, I often get the same bewildered look that says “I don’t know what I am waiting for.” We have an ontological gap in our faith. We believe but we are not quite sure what we believe—because if we truly believe what we say we believe as Christians, we would have a very different world.

Support The Omega Center

If you find Ilia’s vision inspiring and essential for our time, please join our community

To be a ‘member’ of the Omega Center is a call and commitment—to be ‘membered to’—to participate in the unfolding wholeness of God’s eternal love: a wholeness which unfolds within us, among us and before us, as we awaken to a new future in God. We need your financial support, your ‘member-ing,’ to grow and develop the work and vision of the Omega Center.

Within the very forward-moving meaning of Omega is a fundamental interconnectedness: we are all in this together. Supporters of the Omega Center become part of our growing community of love and whole-making—in our cultures and in our cosmos.

This Holiday Season, donations of over $1000 will receive a signed copy of an Ilia Delio book of choice.
