A Stairway of Love

One of our joys this Christmas is the realization that God "came down from heaven" to be with us.  The stairway of perfection is a long and winding staircase.  Isn't it wonderful to meditate on the goodness of God, and how by coming to us, He has made it possible for us to go to Him?  "It is not that we love God, but that God loved us first" (St. John the Apostle)
