 Grateful for A Proportioned Extravagance

The infant Christ cries out for a response. In his littleness and poverty, he has proportioned himself to us, fallen creatures. May we not deny him access to our weakness and wounds. In his divinity, he has come to give us grace in place of grace. May we not expect or ask for anything less. Let us hasten to Bethlehem, to thank him for coming to us in our need and to receive the richness of grace he desires to impart.
