Away In A Manger

Born in a manger… a feeding place for animals… to feed you and me, His most precious creatures. God awaits us in a manger. Christ, the Lord, lay there so that we might be lifted to Him. God wishes to make our hearts a manger and to raise our minds to heavenly realities.

Pope Benedict XVI invites us to reflect on the mystery of God Incarnate as we contemplate Nativity scenes during this Christmas Season in our homes, churches, and public places.  It’s amazing how these little displays show the greatness of God – and the greatness to which you and I are called.

Draw near to a manger this Christmas.

Let it speak to you.

Let what is depicted there come alive and make a lasting difference in your life. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
