Only by reading the cave of Bethlehem together with Golgotha can we be able to grasp the revolution of Christmas, and we do not turn it into a romantic feast of gifts and good feelings.

If man's dream is to become infinite and omnipotent like God, God's dream has been to become finite and powerless like man: "And the verb became flesh and came to dwell among us". (John 1). Christmas is immense because in that infinite light of the night of Bethlehem there is the same light of the night that welcomes a child who is born and born risky. It risks the earth, and it illuminates the sky. Because if the Logos of God has truly become man, like us, like everyone else, then the flesh has entered the Trinitarian dance, and the birth, life and death of every man cannot leave God immune.
