Advent Silence II

monica14

The silence of Christmas can be felt most clearly late on Christmas Eve, when all the day’s business is done and evening cedes to the stillness of midnight. When all gives way to silence, it becomes apparent that the silence has all along been pregnant. Now she is ready to give birth. Softly, gently, at first indiscernibly, light begins to stir within her womb. Slowly the light grows and spreads. Out of silence, God is born into his creation.

MLT.
