Merry, Blessed, and Holy Christmas to you, your family, and loved ones! For your thoughtful pleasure, I submit this excerpt from St. Teresa of Avila on the humanity of Jesus Christ:
With so good a Friend and Captain ever present, Himself the first to suffer, everything can be borne. He helps, He strengthens, He never fails, He is the true Friend. I see clearly, and since then have always seen, that if we are to please God, and if He is to give us His great graces, everything must pass through the hands of His most Sacred Humanity, in whom His Majesty said that He is well pleased. (The Life of St. Teresa of Avila [New York: Cosimo], ch. 22, sec. 9, p. 160)
Merry Christmas to you too!
