'How to find Christmas peace in a world of unrest? You cannot find peace on the outside but you can find peace on the inside, by letting God do to your soul what Mary let Him do to her body; namely, let Christ be formed in you....
'As He was physically formed in her, so
He wills to be spiritually formed in you. If you knew He was seeing
through your eyes, you would see in every fellowman a child of God. If
you knew that He worked through your hands, they would bless all the day
Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
Painting Gerhard Wilhelm von Reutern, 1843
