Beautiful meditation on the Nativity...

...from The Everlasting Man, quoted in the Hebdomadal Chesterton. Surely one of Chesterton's loftiest flights of eloquence. And a good example of how Chesterton's best passages defy classification; not simply devotional, not strictly philosophical, partly poetical, but perhaps most accurately described as a combination of all three.
