God makes us small relative to the universe, and then He makes Himself small, too, for us.
He makes Himself small in His infant birth to Mary.
He makes Himself poor in order to commune with the poor.
He is greater than the universe, yet He desires to be smaller than or as small as those persons to which He gives existence. Why?
Who He Is absolutely demands that He conform to being small since Love draws the Lover to the Beloved that the two may experience communion on a common level, but a level which is even more intimate and deeper than even the cutest smallness. This descent into intimacy must be infinite and fulfilling at every level of intimacy, and it is a constant descent…a constant “falling in Love.”
