The Star

"Today  the Magi find crying in a manger
the one they have followed as he shone in the sky. 
Today the Magi see clearly, in swaddling clothes,
the one they have long awaited as he lay hidden among the stars.
Today the Magi gaze in deep wonder at what they see:
heaven on earth, earth in heaven
man in God, God in man
one whom the whole universe cannot contain
now enclosed in a tiny body"
                     --Peter Chrysologus
