The Miracle of Christmas

The grounds for belief and disbelief are the same today as they were two thousand -- or ten thousand -- years ago. If St. Joseph had lacked faith to trust God or humility to perceive the holiness of his spouse, he could have disbelieved the miraculous origin of her Son as easily as any modern man; and any modern man who believes in God can accept the miracle as easily as St. Joseph did. ~Miracles, by C.S. Lewis


  1. Forgive me for pointing out something absolutely unrelated to the post and having no beneficial content whatsoever, but...

    Did it ever occur to you that the old man, the third one wearing all white, would only need to trim his beard and he'd look just like Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars IV: A New Hope?

  2. What a great quote. I love the way C.S. Lewis words things.

    De Facto--you're thilly. And...yah, I see it.

    And an unrelated note of my own--I'm sorry for disappearing off the face of the blog earth...finals happened. And then holidays of course. And then a to-do list of things I happily promised. I ought to add writing a blog post to my to-do list...

    Thanks for taking over in my absence though Addie! <3
