A Commentary

The Infant of Prague is pictured wearing a crown, with a globe in one small hand, and this is not without meaning. "The government is on His shoulder," we sing in the Introit of the third Mass for Christmas day. The Child of Bethlehem was born with a mission of salvation.

Being a follower of Christ demands courage, decisive action, maturity. But coupled with these must always be humility, candor, confidence—those virtues of childhood. It is these virtues that Jesus is recommending.

Love for our Infant Savior teaches us to accept—as He did—our littleness, our poverty as creatures. It teaches us, as St. Paul was taught, that "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in infirmity" (2 Cor. 12, 9). This devotion shows us that God's power is attracted by our very weakness, for when dealing with our human frailty, God's power is mercy. The proud and arrogant, God scatters, "He has put down the mighty from their thrones," as our Lady sang in her Magnificat. But the little and humble He loves. "He has exalted the lowly" (Lk. 1, 52).
