A New Age, a New World ?   ‘Thy Kingdom Come’

A New Age, a New World ? ‘Thy Kingdom Come’

The Lion cometh and winter is turning into spring, everywhere, despite the heavy spells from the ice witches and wizards. This is C.S. Lewis’ image for the advent of the Beast : Professor Lewis was a supreme theologian, revealing insights into the Traditional mysteries in some of the most popular children’s stories ever.

Prof. Lewis portrays Christ as a Lion, apparently adopting the interpretation of the Beast 666 which Traditional wisdom dictates. If we think it’s going to be all bloomin’ flower power, perhaps we’d better remember the last time that peace and love number was tried, 1966, or ’68. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tells the spell was not broken without a fierce battle but trying to forecast the future usually distracts vital attention from the present.

While the grim grip of blind materialism and its economic imperatives holds sway with ever fiercer folly, the insistent green shoots of a more human, more beautiful future are all around us, if we had but time to marvel.
