The Apostle Paul reminds the Galatians that, in God’s infinite and unknowable wisdom, He chose the time, “in the fullness of the time,” to send His only Begotten son, offering salvation to all mankind.

Before the Christ, no one knew when that time would be. After the Christ, and as Paul also taught, all that came before suddenly made sense. And the world was changed, forever.

As we pass through Advent, from the Latin for “arrival,” and prepare to commemorate this unique and historic event, Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, President, Christendom College, reflected at the luncheon on why God chose when He did to send the Savior, and why it matters now.
