“My Brethren, it is plain that, when we confess God as Omnipotent only, we have gained but a half-knowledge of Him: His is an Omnipotence which can at the same time swathe Itself in infirmity and can become the captive of Its own creatures... We must know Him by His names, Emmanuel and Jesus, to know Him perfectly.”

Omnipotence in Bonds is one of the most celebrated sermons by St. John Henry Newman, first preached on the Sunday after Epiphany in 1857, the first year of the University Church, Dublin.

Newman meditates on the Incarnation, by which God makes Himself subject to His creatures—even before Christ’s Nativity, and even after His Crucifixion. This is a powerful reflection both for Advent as well as for the Christmas season!
