I AM COMING TO YOU AS A CHILD

Dakar, Senegal 2013
Homily of His Holiness Benedict XVI
Midnight Mass Christmas 2012

“Again and again the beauty of this Gospel touches our hearts: a beauty that is the splen­dour of truth. Again and again it aston­ishes us that God makes him­self a child so that we may love him, so that we may dare to love him, and as a child trust­ingly lets him­self be taken into our arms. 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."

Heart’s Home USA wishes you a Merry Christmas
