"Man sinned and became guilty; God is born a man to free man from his guilt. Man fell, but God descended; man fell miserably, but God descended mercifully; man fell through pride, God descended with his grace." (St. Augustine) As we meditate on the mystery of Christmas, we realize the enormity of God's love for us. How can we ever refer to ourselves as "poor me" after the birth of our Savior? This was true before, but there is nothing poor about me. I have been enriched by the greatest gift possible. His birth gave me rebirth, from the misery of alienation from God to becoming forever a son or daughter of the Most High. Having been given another chance, what I will do with this gift, is my responsibility.
