Behold on Christmas a new and wondrous reality

Behold on Christmas a new and wondrous reality….He Who is above now for our redemption dwells here below, and we who are lowly are by divine mercy raised up. Bethlehem this day resembles heaven, hearing from the stars the singing of angelic voices. Ask not how. For where God wills, nature yields. For He willed. He had the power. He descended. He redeemed.

St. John Chrysostom
