Mother St. Paul (1861-1940)
"The nine months draw to a close, and our Lord's last act is to journey from
Nazareth to . It is toward us, as well as toward Bethlehem , that He is journeying. Bethlehem
He is about to leave His home a second time for the love of us. As He had left His uncreated home in the Bosom of the Father, so is He now going to leave His created home that He may come to us and be still more ours.
He will show us in this last action that He is not obedient merely to His holy and chosen Mother, but that He has come to be the servant of our commands and to wait upon our forwardness..."
