Quote for Reflection (Sunday, December 26, 2021)

“What is significant about Christmas? It is the recognition of God, dwelling among us, in the person of Jesus – the Emanuel. Such a proclamation by us, the people of faith, appears outrageous to the unbeliever…‘The action of the incarnation is the revelation of God’s divine love for all people, a love which is self-giving, all-embracing and which enables us to be truly human, as we realize in our lives the divine imperative to b god-like in our relating to each other.”
