Again, I say: Rejoice . . .

The God who chose history’s forgotten people as his own, and who came into the world in obscurity and ignominy, and who thereafter inserts himself into human history by way of a Church as outwardly motley and inwardly magnificent as a Bethlehem cowshed, now enters “the rag and bone shop of the heart” as a little piece of bread.

Could the Good News get any better than this?

Have a Blessed and Joyful Christmas.

I think yours is the first Christmas blog post I've seen with a reference to Yeats. I've been asked to contribute something for a church service with the theme of Love Coming Down and I think I'm going to steal some of your ideas on resentment and the "loss of the mechanism".
