Our God did what every mother would shudder to do. He sent his child
directly into the heart of evil with no protection, save faith, hope,

terror and loss of living in our broken, bleeding world. He chose
instead to be present with us, to enter into our pain. During Advent, as
we prepare our hearts for the arrival of the vulnerable Christ child,
our call is to likewise look pain and darkness full on.
