"God's sign is the baby. God's sign is that he makes himself small for us. This is how he reigns. He does not come with power and outward splendor. He comes as a baby -- defenseless and in need of our help. He does not want to overwhelm us with his strength. He takes away our fear of his greatness. He asks for our love: so he makes himself a child. He wants nothing other from us than our love, through which we spontaneously learn to enter into his feelings, his thoughts and his will -- we learn to live with him and to practice with him that humility of renunciation that belongs to the very essence of love. God made himself small so that we could understand him, welcome him, and love him."There are those who would say that the pro-life movement is full of people who "love the child, but forget the mother." Nothing could be further from the truth, of course, but usually the opposite is true, that those who call themselves pro-choice focus on the mother and forget the baby. They would even approve the destruction of that baby.
