Consider the Lord God, who here dwells in this Baby in all of His infinite and eternal fullness, to have countless myriads of most glorious and gigantic worlds and earths, the infinitely smallest part of which you see in the nighttime as little stars in the sky,
which He could have chosen for His incarnation as He did this earth! And despite this He has chosen this meager earth which, in fact, is the most miserable and inferior among all the countless spheres in every respect.
But thus it has pleased Him, the eternal Lord of infinity, to do - He did it, as is manifest before our eyes.
Now do you suppose that He needed either our counsel or our agreement for that?
See, that would be a basically false thought! He does what He wants alone from eternity, and never has anyone been His counselor!
Now who can ask Him and say: Lord, what are You doing, and why do You do it? -
He is in Himself eternally the highest perfection, the highest wisdom, the greatest love and gentleness.
He is in Himself the only most high power and might; one thought of destruction in His breast - and everything instantly sinks back into nothing.
And behold, here He allows Himself as a weak Child of man to be coaxed on the arms of a frail Jewish maiden.
And He who provides countless suns, worlds and beings of infinite description with life-giving, most wisely appropriate nourishment most generously from eternity, does Himself here on this meager earth suck the frail breasts of a fifteen-year-old maiden.
He as the primal Life of all life has Himself put on the garment of death and of sin and has hidden Himself in flesh and blood!
Now what do you say to that? - How does that seem to you? Would you not like to have a clearer explanation of that also?
But as little as you will ever comprehend that in its full depth, just that little can any more be told you here concerning the early speaking of this most high Child!
Love Him instead with all your might, and betray Him nowhere, and you will then find something in this love which otherwise all the heavens will not be able to reveal to you in eternities.'
(Childhood of Jesus, chap. 130)
