CQOD: 12/23/07 -- Crashaw: Welcome!

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 23, 2007
    But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
    -- Luke 1:30-33 (NIV)

    Welcome! all Wonders in one sight!
        Eternity shut in a span.
    Summer in winter, day in night,
        Heaven in earth, and God in man.
    Great little one! whose all-embracing birth
        Lifts earth to heaven, stoops heav’n to earth!
        ... Richard Crashaw (1613-1649)

Quiet time reflection:
    Welcome into our hearts, Lord!
