This week, we celebrate the tipping point of human history. The night the world both natural and supernatural irrevocably changed. God became man and dwelt among us. The Word became incarnate and humbled himself to be human, infant, dependent, and adored. In the relentless rush of time, there was a moment when the obedience and labor of Mary, the care of Joseph, the song of angels, and adoration of shepherds all focused on the One who brings salvation, peace and true hope to the entire world.
