The Creche To The Cross

“His birth and his death are but one continual act, and his Christmas Day and his Good Friday are but the evening and the morning of one and the same day.  From the creche to the cross is an inseparable line.  Christmas only points forward to Good Friday and Easter.  It can have no meaning apart from that, where the Son of God displayed his glory by his death.”

John Donne, The Book of Uncommon Prayers
This excerpt from Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas

Copied this evening into my Commonplace Book.
