The source of the Incarnation is God’s goodness… But one thing immediately appears so marvellous, so radiant and so extraordinary that it shines out as a dazzling sign. It is the infinite humility contained in this mystery: God, Being, the Infinite One, the Perfect One, the Immense and Almighty Creator, the Sovereign Lord of all things becomes man, unites Himself to a human soul and body and appears on earth as a man, as the least of men.


Charles De Foucauld

Retreat at Nazareth, 6 November 1897
