Christmas eve

"Joseph was on his knees. Mary held out firm hands, lifting up her son... wrapped in swaddling clothes, lifting him up adoringly, the fate of the world reposing in the chalice of her hands.

Even in the first instant of seeing the child Joseph was aware of something extraordinary different about him. Somehow he knew that this newborn baby... whose expression was of such potent innocence and affection, had come into the world to get nothing and to give everything."
