The Very Reverend Pedro Arrupe, Superior General of the Jesuits::
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”God came as one of us. His Incarnation began as each of us enters the world, in pain and awe and peril. The Creator entered His creation to redeem it-- to redeem us-- by acquaintance with Him, by sharing his Love with each other, and at the end of His life on earth by his astonishing act of love on the Cross.
On this Holy Day, in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, Love became flesh and dwelt among us.
