"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Jeffrey has assembled quite a collection of beautiful Nativities for our meditation.  Visit him here.  The example shown above by Johann Koerbecke is charming in that it shows the angels nearly as little as the Bambino.  Angels can be quite tiny you know... perhaps as small as a twinkle...


  1. Just call me Sparky!

  2. Yes, angels can be quite tiny. How many did we decide can fit on the head of a pin, again?

    I find the angels fascinating. I just read that the Seraphim, the highest of all the angels have three sets wings: one cover their feet, the second are used for flying and the third pair of wind are used to cover their eyes, as they sing Holy, Holy, Holy. So overcome with the love of God that they must cover their eyes.
