Awakened to the Reality
The beginning of Jesus’ story is so important. More important, apparently, than the next 25 years of his life. And so, we are awakened to the reality of how his life began. Jesus, God Incarnate, began his earthly journey seeking refuge, searching for sanctuary in a world that was hostile to the idea that the poor and the lame, the outcast and the blind, the orphan and the widow were Kings and Queens in the eyes of God. This was a message very unwelcomed by tyrants like Herod.
