The thoughts of Archbishop Dr. Kovács Gergely

It is heartbreaking to see a little child crying.  The child stops crying  when a parent comforts him/her, when someone wipes the tears from his/her eyes. It is comforting for the child to know that s/he is not alone. One of the beautiful consolations of our Advent season is when the prophet Jeremiah assures us that "the Lord wipes away tears from every face". "I pity the people" says Jesus, expressing the tenderness of God who became flesh on that night in Bethlehem and became part of our human life.
