  • My priest pointed out that shepherds were on the bottom of the social scale. So, not only did God choose ordinary men with whom to share the birth of His Son, they were of the lower socioeconomic class His Law had championed and His Son would champion in His ministry. As, ah hem, an animal person, He was also born surrounded by animals, of whom He knew when each one fell. From the get go, Jesus was praised and glorified by the entire spectrum of life on Earth - even the rocks sang out.
