Advent We Wait, Lent We Complete

Child in the manger, Infant of Mary.  I was very struck this past Sunday  by these comparisons, see if they strike you in the same way: 

The manger: a simple feeding box for the animals. Jesus uses a simple cup during the Passover meal. Jesus is the Bread of Life

Bethlehem: the town were Mary and Joseph go to register, Mary's time is completed, the name Bethlehem means House of Flesh.

The Star in the East: the Magi, Shepherds are all guided to the place were the infant is born, Mary is the Morning Star, Christ will draw all, rich and poor, great and small to him.
