The mystery hidden from eternity and unknown to the angels
After the fall of man, the infinite love of the Father, through His Word and Son, has revealed forgiveness and paternal love at once, transferring man’s suffering and the pain of his life into the bosom of the Most Holy Trinity, and sent His Son into the world. Christ is no longer far from us, but a man like us, he takes our nature and comes among us to speak with us in our language, to know us, to feel and to heal our pains, to comfort our sadness and loneliness and stay with us forever. Infant Jesus, through His birth and nurture by his mother, the Virgin Mary and the Holy and the Righteous Joseph, his protector in Nazareth of Galilee, ennobles, blesses and sanctifies the family as the safe place where the children grow up and become strong filled with wisdom (Luke 2:40).
