THE WORD was made flesh, Et Incarnatum Est. What an immensity is contained within that phrase! We kneel before the Mystery when we proclaim it in the Creed. We sing it over and over again, this Love of God made visible in a tiny human frame; this Strength of God Almighty in the fragility of a new-born child. Can the God whom we adore be a God far off? Surely not. He is forever Emmanuel, God-with-us. So, as St Basil says, let us dance with the angels and sing.
A HAPPY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.
