The Gift Giving of Christmas

“St Ambrose [teaches], Do not be afraid of giving the Lord what is yours, since He granted to you what is His (Treatise on the Gospel According to St Luke, Book 4, no 79).  In becoming man, the Son of God has given to men the power to become sons of God (John 1:12) and to participate in the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4), in the divine life.”  (Archbishop Dmitri (Royster), The Miracles of Christ, pg  52)
