“What worthy return can we make for so great a condescension? The One Only-begotten God, ineffably born of God, entered the Virgin’s womb and grew and took the frame of poor humanity. He who upholds the universe, within whom and through whom are all things, was brought forth by common childbirth. He at whose voice archangels and angels tremble, and Heaven and Earth and all the elements of this world are melted, was heard in childish wailing. The Invisible and Incomprehensible, whom sight and feeling and touch cannot measure, was wrapped in a cradle.” – Hilary of Poitiers
Although a little late in the day for those who reside on the Eastern side of the globe (the ‘first to see the sun’), on this Holy Feast day, the Nativity of Our Blessed Saviour, we would nevertheless still like to wish you all, our friends and visitors, and especially those who are regular commenters here, a very joyful and blessed Christmas from all six of us on the Team of this blog, Catholicism Pure and Simple. May the Holy Infant pour down upon you His Sanctifying Grace on each and every one, and on your families. God Bless.
