I found the Chronology prepared by the translator contrasting Father Delp's life of sanctity with the rise of Hitler to totalitarian power very interesting. It is quite striking because it also shows the parallels in the rise of another relatively unknown, a politician eight decades later, into the heady heights of power.
It's well worth reading.
These are sermons offered by Fr Delp on the occasion of Advent Sundays in Germany in the early to mid 1040's. He wrote the 1944 sermons wearing handcuffs. They shot him.
I think I'm out of space. This is no Christmas piece. It addresses the path to true joy in ghastly circumstances.
