“That blissful moment has come! The beautiful Babe of Bethlehem appears upon the earth. Mary is in rapture; kneels in adoring love, and then lifts Him as the priest lifts the Host at Mass, before she presses Him to her with that indescribable Maternal love in one long Communion.”
This Christmas, let us reflect on Mary Potter’s connection between the birth of our Saviour and the sacred moment of Mass. This is a very special insight that we would do well to ponder often during Christmastide.
