Merry Christmas!





Merry Christmas from our home to yours! May this Season of Christmastide be blessed for each of you. Thanks for your faithful reading of my ramblings this past year. You're the best!


"The phrase admirabile commercium, current in the theology and spirituality of the Nativity, is used to describe this ‘admirable exchange between the divine and the human.…The first act of that exchange comes about in Christ’s own humanity. The Word assumed our humanity and, in exchange, human nature was raised to divine dignity. The second act of the exchange consists in our real and intimate involvement in the divine nature of the Word.…Thus Christmas is the feast in which God comes so close to man as to share the very act of being born, showing men and women their most profound dignity: that of being children of God. Humanity’s dream which began in the Garden of Eden – we want to be like God – is realized in an unexpected way, not through the greatness of man, who cannot make himself God, but through the humility of God Who came down among us in His humility, raising us to the true greatness of His being.’"

  1. Hi Sarah,

    I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your lovely family. Your kids are all so cute. I am going to Rome to study there with my school until April so I am very excited for that. It is going to be a blast. Have a blessed rest of Christmas!

Heyo! Welcome to Two Os Plus More! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note. I *do* read and appreciate each and every comment, but sometimes due to, you know, life and stuff, it does take me a bit to reply. Cheers!
