The Ordinary…

Posted on Updated on



Day 4: The Donkey Here is where the nativity gets interesting.  Angels, virgin birth–these things appear to be expected as we look back on the text.  The donkey? Maybe not as much. There is nice story about a donkey in the Old Testament that yells at a prophet (serious–in Numbers), but this donkey is not that kind of donkey.  This is the donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem.  He’s special for carrying the Mother of the Son of God.  So many a nativity will include the donkey after the holy family.  It’s a reminder that the ordinary became extraordinary at Christmas. Praise God!
