Advent Meditation: When Dependence is Beautiful

When Dependence Is Beautiful

“There’s something so beautiful, almost palpable, about that love between a mother and her baby. And why is it that we look at this new, wrinkly, helpless creature and find him beautiful too?

In other contexts, such helplessness and vulnerability seems unattractive; it’s seen as a bad thing, something to avoid at all costs. 

Christ became helpless and vulnerable on the cross, yet we don’t feel the same surge of warmth looking at a crucifix as we do when looking at a crib…” Read the rest

Christ made Himself dependent…

Don’t forget! There’s still time to win a free Catholic children’s book in our giveaway 🙂

How do you view your limitations and dependence this year? With frustration or joy?

Let me know in the comments!
