Incarnation shows depth of God’s love, Pope tells Wednesday audience
CWN - January 09, 2013
Pope Benedict XVI offered some reflections on the word “Incarnation” at his weekly audience on Wednesday, January 9, observing that the word “has resounded many times in our churches over these past days.”
The Incarnation, the Pope said, shows “the unprecedented reality of divine love.” He continued: “He is not satisfied with speaking but immerses himself in our history and takes upon himself the worry and the weight of human life.”
In taking human flesh, the Pope said, “God took on the human condition in order to heal it of everything that separates it from Him.” During the celebrations of the Christmas season, he said, the faithful should “let ourselves be enveloped by the grandeur of this event: God walked our paths as man.”
