Quote of the day, 24 December: St. Edith Stein

[W]hen on Christmas Eve the trees are lit and the presents exchanged, men are still longing for other lights, until the bells ring for the Midnight Mass, and the miracle of the Holy Night is renewed on the flower-decked altars with their burning candles: “And the Word was made flesh“. This is the moment of bliss fulfilled.
