We see today the newly born girl-child and understand the great is love of God. We hear the cries of a small child and learn of the unutterable wisdom of the Trinity. We look at the human child and through our tears we se how exalted man becomes through love—exalted to the radiant light of the throne of Life.
We live in a changing world. All around are life, death, the past, and old age, passing on from one stage to the next. People become what their parents were, children grow into youths and then into adults, the elderly depart to the earth, and all are pitilessly stalked by the specter of death.
So, what is there left for us to do? We are recorded, wiretapped, watched. There are more and more electronic eyes, behind which are concealed either good or bad intentions—we don't know which. Everything is known about us. For we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men (1 Cor 4:9).
