Yesterday we finished the Christmas card from our Santo Nino project. It is a wreath that is decorated with the faces of several of the children with special needs who are our own “holy innocents”. The wreath itself is a good symbol for them because in so many ways they are on the periphery of things. Except at Santo Nino where they are the center of attention.
Today we are invited to remember all whose lives are counted as less. Who are the victims of our indifference? They are the ones who have God’s ear. They are the “least ones” in whom the Christ hides.
Can we, as simple as shepherds and as wise as Magi, seek out this God today?
