Today's task is to secure a place to spend 5 quiet minutes a day. If there is no such place; create one. If you are unable to create one at home - how about your car? You might arrive 5 minutes early or stay 5 minutes later at the office or school. Or maybe a nearby Eucharistic Adoration chapel? No? If your church is locked, you can ask to be let in to pray. When all else fails, visit a library or a bathroom stall.
Consider the eternal God about to step into time as a human.
The God of creation about to set aside all majesty,
and all splendor to begin as a single cell in the womb of a human mother.
The all powerful becoming powerless.
The all-encompassing allowing himself to become encompassed in a virgin's womb.
The humility of God is shining a light for us.
The Word of God is silently calling us.
