The stable is a place for the outcasts

“There was no room in the inn, but there was room in the stable. The inn is the gathering place of public opinion, the focal point of the world’s moods, the rendezvous of the worldly, the rallying place of the popular and the successful. But the stable is a place for the outcasts, the ignored, the forgotten. The world might have expected the Son of God to be born – if he was to be born at all – in an inn. A stable would be the last place in the world where one would have looked for him. Divinity is always where one least expects to find it.”

- Fulton Sheen
