The holy child is born. God with us. And almost unnoticed, everything changes.
Some wisdom from Meister Eckhart from mayBe's Eve of the Nativity eucharist:
What good is it to me,
if Mary gave birth
to the Son of God,
and I do not also give birth to him
in my time and
May the joy, peace and hope of the Holy Family be yours, for the world, today.
