Clairvaux Manifesto, page 29
(quote) Spirit; Geist; Pneuma; Rhuah; Breath. When we seek God like a drowning soul longs for air, we’ll find God. In the beginning, God got down into the dust and breathed the shell of a man to life. Second time around, God himself became dust. When does God breathe life into himself? Who is God that he should need and receive breath from God’s self? God humbled himself in every way. Mary nurtured God. Joseph, his surrogate father, needed to obey an angel to save all their lives. From his first breath, Jesus of Bethlehem was a thirsty little refugee clinging to the edge of the human condition.
