Christmas Day

"To restore man, who has been laid low by sin, to the heights of divine glory, the Word of the eternal Father, though containing all things within His immensity, willed to become small. This He did, not by putting aside His greatness, but by taking to Himself our littleness."

- St. Thomas Aquinas, Introduction to The Compendium of Theology

Sometimes it is easy to forget that Christmas is a celebration of God coming to earth. This idea alone can provide a lifetime of meditation for anyone who desires to take it seriously.
