On Christmas Eve

Later in his ministry, Jesus will remind a follower that he, “the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” But for now, the Infant Jesus rests in the arms of Mary and Joseph, hidden with them in an ordinary life of pleasures, dull routine, sorrows, aches and pains like ours. And even now, he asks each of us if he can rest his head against our heart. How shall we respond?
