Midnight in Rome

From the National Catholic Register:

“Again and again,” the Pope said at midnight mass], “it astonishes us that God makes himself a child so that we may love him. [It] is as if God were saying: I know that my glory frightens you, and that you are trying to assert yourself in the face of my grandeur. So now I am coming to you as a child, so that you can accept me and love me.”

To everyone here at Ricochet, Merry Christmas.
