2018 12 30: The Christmas Story According to St. Paul

God didn’t have to be born of a woman, you know.  The miracle of the virgin birth and the Incarnation is great enough that I suppose God could have sent his Son as a full-grown man, all grown up and able to take care of himself.  But that’s not what he did.  God sent his son in the relentless, all-consuming, adorably cute, dare I say even manipulative love of a little child.
