Grou: the Vision
[The Angel:] “This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
—Luke 2:12 (NIV)
Remember, too, who they were who were admitted into His Manger. None without a special, miraculous call, as though to teach us that we cannot attain to an interior life without our vocation be of God, and that those He calls must resemble the Shepherds in lowliness and freedom from worldly longings; in vigilance, for it was during their night watch that they were called; in faith, for had they doubted the Heavenly Vision, they would never have found Christ.
