An Advent Tapestry–To Be Consoled and Confirmed

Gerrit van Honthorst "L'adoration des bergers"

”Look upon the baby Jesus. Divinity may terrify us. Inexpressible majesty will crush us. That is why Christ took on our humanity…that he should not terrify us but rather that with love and favor he should console and confirm.” Martin Luther

detail from Domenico Ghirlandaio's Adoration of the Shepherds
