Today at Mass, the phrase "heaven and earth are full of your glory" really struck me. Especially the "and earth" part. "The kindness and love of God our Savior has appeared." (I love that reading from Christmas day.) That's the focal point of Christmas, in a way: the glory of God filling the earth; becoming one with the earth in human nature. Heaven and earth are always full of God's glory, but I rarely notice it or give thanks and praise for it. I get too absorbed by the non-glorious things, the falling-short, the missteps. And the glory of God is there, filling the earth all along.
