We Blush With Shame

'You, O eternal God... have come down from the great height of Your divinity to the mire of our humanity, because the lowliness of my intellect could neither understand nor behold such height. In order that my littleness might see Your greatness, You became a little child, concealing the greatness of Your Deity in the littleness of our humanity....

O blush with shame, blind creature, so exalted and honored by your God, not to know that God, in His inestimable charity, came down from the height of His infinite Deity to the lowliness of your humanity!'

St. Catherine of Siena

St. Joseph Seeks Lodging in Bethlehem


  1. "the greatness of Your Deity in the littleness of our humanity..." Amen. Beautiful words from a beautiful saint...

    1. Her words are treasures. And so, I might add, are the ones you so beautifully pen.
