“I am a nobody, I am a small rope, a tiny ladder, the tail end, a leaf.” (Saint Juan Diego) St. Paul reminds us that God chooses the weak to confound the strong; the foolish to confound the wise. During this Advent season, we should ask the Lord to show us how to have a similar humble heart. For it is to the lowly and the humble that more easily receives the Lord.  He chose Mary, an unknown young girl from Nazareth to be his Mother. He chose the poverty of a stable to be born in. The first to hear of his birth were humble shepherds. Do we have such a heart? If so, then we are able to receive him this Christmas. If not, there is still time to prepare that humble abode for Jesus within us. Come, Lord Jesus, come!
