Seeing Christmas for the First Time | Human Life International

The marvelous story of Christ, God made man, “raised in us…a dignity beyond compare.” We must never forget the great love He has for all of us.

Among G.K. Chesterton’s many brilliant aphorisms is the following: “There is a law written in the darkest of the Books of Life, and it is this: If you look at a thing nine hundred and ninety-nine times, you are perfectly safe; if you look at it the thousandth time, you are in frightful danger of seeing it for the first time.”
Chesterton was a great lover of Christmas, and wrote numerous poems and essays celebrating this most mystical and poetical of Christian feasts. I have no doubt that he would have agreed with me when I say that Christmas tops the list of those things that many of us have seen countless times, and yet have never truly seen.
Let us consider the barest, historical facts of the matter: God, Whose name is…
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Shenan J. Boquet
