Do you not realize by what means Christ pursues you?
He who encloses the world is enclosed in a womb; the Author of nature is born; the Creator of human beings and of periods of time becomes the Firstborn of humanity; the Treasure of heaven is clothed with the swaddling clothes of the indigent; he who makes thunderbolts fly gives an infant's cry; in a manger lies the One to whom all creation lies subject.
O man, do you not realize by what means Christ pursues you in order to call you back? He enters the womb in order to refashion you in the womb; he is born in order to make you reborn to immortality; he becomes the Firstborn in order to offer you a share in the divine lineage.
St. Peter Chrysologus (5th century)
Merry Christmas to you and your families!
