A thought for Christmas Eve: “We must let ourselves be amazed”

From this week’s Wednesday audience:

“In the night of the world, we must let ourselves be amazed and illumined by this act of God, which is totally unexpected: God becomes a Child. We must let ourselves be amazed, illumined by the Star that inundated the universe with joy. May the Child Jesus, in coming to us, not find us unprepared, busy only in making the exterior reality more beautiful and attractive. May the care we give to making our streets and homes more resplendent impel us even more to predispose our soul to encounter Him who will come to visit us.”

– Pope Benedict XVI
