Heilige Adventszeit, Thoughts from Padre Pio's letters, St Francis de Sales

Poverty, humility, degradation, contempt surround the Word made flesh. But from the darkness in which this Word made flesh is enveloped, we understand one thing, we hear a voice, we catch a glimpse of a sublime truth. All this He has done out of love, and He does nothing but invite us to love; He speaks of nothing else but love; He gives nothing but proof of love. (Letters IV, pp. 972 – 973)
