The Incarnation-Divine Helplessness
God's choice to give human beings free will was, from the beginning, a decision to be helpless in human hands. With the birth of Jesus, God made the divine helplessness very clear to us, for a human infant is totally dependent on the loving response of other people. Our natural response to a baby is to open our arms.
May this Christmas, we all do the same to to the infant of Bethlehem and to the God who made us all. (from St. Anthony Messenger)
