Incarnate Wisdom is Born

Wisdom entered time as time:
Entered creation as creativity;

And walked among us as many, but none more filled with Her than Jesus

Of Whom the Ineffable said, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17).

To know Him as Wisdom
Is to know Him as the Apostles knew Him at His Transfiguration:

“Light radiant, sublime, immense, unlimited, Older than heaven and chaos” (Hymn of Transfiguration).

That is, they knew Him as Her, Eternal Wisdom,

She who is illustrious, high, immense, infinite, and older than the universe.



Blessed Christmas and holy peace to all.
