Reflection: birth, parenting, creation, incarnation:

What is/was it like to be new, uninformed, starry-eyed?

What is it like to be a mother giving birth? For the first time?

What is it like to be a father/partner supporting a mother giving birth?

What is it like taking responsibility for the life of another?

To what else do we give birth? Create? Nurture?

Story: birth of the Sacred King to the Queen of Heaven
