O Rex Gentium

“O King of all the nations, the only joy of every human heart; O Keystone of the mighty arch of man, come and save the creature you fashioned from the dust.”

As Christmas now stands at the threshold, perhaps our empty hearts which has so longed for the savior may now be a throne for a King so worthy. If such a throne is ready for him, His coming in poverty, in disguise, and in humility becomes an awe-inspiring moment in human history and in the depths of our personal lives. God becomes a child and we welcome Him to reign in our hearts, to dwell with us.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:5)
