"Behold peace no longer promised but conferred; no longer delayed but given; no longer predicted but bestowed. Behold God the Father has sent down to earth a scrip which shall be rent in the Passion, so that the treasure it contains and conceals shall be poured out for our ransom; a scrip small indeed, but full of preciousness. For it is a Little One that is given to us, yet in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead." - St. Bernard of Clairvaux
