Christmastide Thoughts

I cannot comment worthily on the mystery of Christmas: the mystery of the Strong revealed in the weak and helpless, of the Infinite confined to a crib, of the Divine Riches revealed in the eyes of a baby, and of the celestial outcasts discovering that God Himself has sought them out. It is this mystery that has capsized the universe: the heavens explode in infinite golden song, the Angelic Orders in vast array bow to a Man, nay a Child!

In this mystery, humanity is thrust into the very depths of God.
