Fall on your knees!

Tonight and tomorrow, we kneel at some incredible words of the Nicene Creed.

After professing: "For us men and for our salvation, He came down from Heaven:"

We proclaim an astounding truth:

"By the power of the Holy Spirit
He was born of the Virgin Mary
and became man."

While pondering — to say nothing of putting it into words! — this can we not fall on our knees?
