Good to Be a Child at Christmas
Luke 2:7

It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child himself.

The Word of God Is a Piercing Word
Hebrews 4:12

The Word of God is not a sounding but a piercing Word, not pronounceable by the tongue, but efficacious in the mind, not sensible to the ear, but fascinating to the affections. His face is not an object possessing beauty of form, but rather is the source of all beauty and all form. It is not visible to the bodily eye, but rejoices the eye of the heart. And it is pleasing, not because of the harmony of its color, but by reason of the ardent love it excites.

BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX
