Puer Natus Est Nobis

On this day, the King of the Universe was born, not just into the world but unto us, unto his own.  The kings of the world immediately set out to destroy him, and eventually they succeeded according to the eyes of history.  But on this day we can pause and imagine a world that did not reject its king, a salvation history in which the world said yes along with Mary, a story–our story–in which the world did not set itself as the enemy of the Gospel.

Yet mirabile scriptu, God has the last laugh over kings and counselors, and we will have our true King quite in spite of ourselves.
