Quote of the Day (Thomas Merton, on ‘The Coming of Jesus’)

"We do not understand that this business about the crib is the real revolution that once and for all turned everything upside-down so that nothing has ever been, or can ever be, the same again. With the coming of Jesus, everything changes." —Thomas Merton, letter of December 20, 1962, in The Road to Joy: The Letters of Thomas Merton to New and Old Friends, edited by Robert E. Daggy (1989)

The image accompanying this post, The Nativity, was painted around 1644 by the French Baroque painter Georges de La Tour (1593-1652).
