"Everything was going wrong…"

Pause for a moment of stillness in the midst of the whirl:

“Remember, too, the struggles of His holy Mother. We know the Christmas story. She did not. It was all new for her. She journeys with Joseph, knowing full well that her time is near. At last they arrive at the inn. But there is no room. Where can they go? Where can they stay the night? And perhaps even then she knew that the birth was imminent. Everything was going wrong. How could she give birth in a tiny cave, a place where animals were kept pinned up during the night? But there was no choice. The time was at hand…”
