Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just. Let the earth be opened and send forth a Savior.
The month of December is devoted to contemplating the mystery of our Savior's infancy. The very God of heaven and earth chose to clothe Himself humbly in human flesh as a helpless babe. He chose to be totally dependent on His Mother for all of His needs, while at the same time, holding all that is in being. This profound mystery shapes our approach to the Christmas mystery, an approach marked by deep gratitude to our meek and humble Savior for His gift of redemption.
Divine Infant King Jesus, come down into our souls!
