He has revealed himself. He has emerged from the inaccessible light in
which he dwells. He himself has come into our midst. This was the
great joy of Christmas for the early Church: God has appeared. No
longer is he merely an idea, no longer do we have to form a picture of
him on the basis of mere words. He has “appeared”. But now we ask: how
has he appeared? Who is he in reality?
God has appeared – as a child.
