Birth and Rebirth

 
Every birth is a miracle, and none more so than the birth of Jesus, celebrated at the time of the winter solstice. The harbinger of spring, the hope for the world. Meister Eckhart, 13th century German mystic, wrote, “We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.”
