**God wrote the story **
of Jesus’ birth
with crooked lines

In Exile

By FR. RON ROLHEISER, omi

Portion of overall text only:

"But, despite our struggle to digest this, it is important that we do so because what is highlighted by the Gospels in the birth of Jesus throws light on all subsequent Christian history and on our own lives. Grace is pure, but we who mediate it often aren’t.
Still God’s love and God’s plan aren’t derailed by our infidelities, sin and scheming. God’s designs for grace still somehow work and this, Brown points out, is not a lesson in discouragement, but in encouragement. "
