Quote Christmas

24 12 2014

Ah! The poverty, the humility of God reduced to lying on straw in a manger, crying and trembling and breaking Mary’s noble heart. Ask the inhabitants of Bethlehem what they think; if that child had been born in a palace in princely surroundings they would worship him. But ask Mary, Joseph, the magi the priest and they will tell you that they see in this dire poverty something which makes God more glorious, more adorable. What is deprivation to the senses nourishes and strengthens faith. The less there is for the senses, the more there is for the soul.

Jean-Pierre de Caussade
