Loving the Bride, vol 45

Something old...

The Magi found Jesus at "BĂȘth-lehem", which means "house of bread." In the humble stable in Bethlehem on some straw lay the "grain of wheat" who, by dying, would bring forth "much fruit" (cf. Jn 12: 24). When speaking of himself and his saving mission in the course of his public life, Jesus would later us the image of bread. He would say, "I am the bread of life, I am the bread which came down from heaven", "the bread that I shall live for the life of the world is my flesh" (Jn 6:35, 41, 51).

(BTW, if you are a pope watcher, check this out.)

Something new....
Archbishop Chaput of Denver weighs in on the movie The Golden Compass. (He pans it.) So glad to see a Catholic leader who gets it right. (As opposed to this embarassment by the USCCB.)

Something borrowed...
This is why we parents encourage our kids to participate in all those Christmas pageants or Nativity plays.

And here's a good discussion about what we women want for Christmas over at Danielle Bean's blog.

Something blue...
"The Child of Mary" and a "Night Prayer" to Mary, here.
