A Final Thought on Christmas

"No one can celebrate a genuine Christmas without being truly poor.
The self-sufficient,
the proud,
those who,
because they have everything,
look down on others,
those who have no need even of God —
for them there will be no Christmas. Only
the poor,
the hungry,
those who need someone to come on their behalf,
will have that someone.
That someone is
God with us.
Without poverty of spirit
there can be no abundance of God."

–Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador
