Here is a beautiful reminder of how Christ, by his own will, depends on us to carry his love into the world, especially during this season of Advent. And it shows how Mary was the very first, most complete and perfect example for us to follow – as she literally brought Christ to all of us. May we faithfully do for others as she has done for us. Happy Advent!
“By his own will Christ was dependent on Mary during Advent: he was absolutely helpless; he could go nowhere but where she chose to take him; he could not speak; her breathing was his breath; his heart beat in the beating of her heart. Today Christ is dependent upon us. This dependence of Christ lays a great trust upon us. During this tender time of Advent we must carry him in our hearts to wherever he wants to go, and there are many places to which he may never go unless we take him.” – Caryll Houselander
