Childlike in Heart
You will receive the little infant Jesus of the Manger
from the Virgin Mary his Mother

This will be the crowning point.

This crowning point could have been the beginning for you just as it was for Jesus, who is your only model and who became a tiny infant.  But maybe you forgot to turn to him lovingly enough and maybe you did not contemplate him long enough in this humble aspect, without grandeur or majesty.  At first you probably did not know quite what to think.

Up till then you were trying to do great and beautiful things, and you were disappointed.  One way or another we are always disappointed when we try to do something admirable by ourselves, even when we claim to be wholly disinterested, insisting so much that we believe it ourselves.
