A Blessed Start of the Nativity Fast

“The Incarnation and the death of the cross of the Savior happened not just to redeem us from our sins, but in order that the world might become aware of the love which God has for His creation. Had all this astounding affair taken place solely for the purpose of the forgiveness of sin, it would have been sufficient to redeem us by some other means. But He did not make His death at all an ordinary one so that you might realize the nature of this mystery of love.” – St. Isaac the Syrian.
