We have come here to wait for him, wait on him, to welcome the mystery of God incessantly in the midst of ordinariness. The poor are always waiting. Our waiting is about powerlessness, littleness, for in Jesus the mystery of God is constantly revealed even as it is hidden. If indeed we seek intimacy with this Mystery, vigilance will always be essential because of the divine reversal that always obtains. God is always reversing things, turning things upside-down, doing it his way, sneaking in through the side door, quietly even on tiptoe.
