The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; God has been gracious to you. You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of God. Luke 1: 26-35
Give thanks for Mary’s courage when she found she was expecting a child
Lord, your mother, Mary, and her “yes” to God’s request is central to the Advent mystery. Help us to become her children and yours, so we may be enveloped in the confidence of being truly loved and cared for by you both. Make it possible for us to say our “yes” to your invitations, no matter how reluctantly we may do so. Amen
Have a chat with someone:
What parts have you played in nativity plays? Which did you enjoy most? Which did you find hardest? Which was most fun?
Do something good this week that you know will take a bit of courage
