"God does not want us to be afraid, distant or envious. God wants us to come close, very close, so close that we can rest in the intimacy of God as children in their mother's arms. So God became a little baby. Who can be afraid of a little baby? A tiny little baby is completely dependent on its parents, nurses, and caregivers. Yes, God wanted to become so powerless as to be unable to eat or drink, walk, play or work without the help of many people.

"Yes, God became dependent on human beings to grow up and live among us and proclaim the good news. Yes, indeed, God chose to become so powerless that the completion of God's own mission among us became dependent on us. How can we fear a baby we rock in our arms, how can we be envious of a baby who only smiles at us in response to our tenderness?

"That's the mystery of the incarnation."
