Tasteless or sacrilegious? The adult mind separates and categorizes. Not so the child. The child blends and fuses things, investing reality with meaning of his making, sometimes striking gold at a deeper level of significance. The logic of Incarnation escapes reason, but the reality of it permeates all levels of being to return original nobility to creation. Would Jesus reject any humble creature?

Description
