The poet Goethe’s dying words were: “Light, light! Let there be more light!” Another poet in response said, “Why more light? We do not die of the darkness so much as the cold.” Our focus on Christmas Eve will be on the “warmth” of the gospel. In the Incarnation, our God did not become an idea but flesh and blood, a warm-blooded human being: there is the Good News.
