Advent Reflection Dec. 6

christmas-art

God had taken care to make His plan plain to those truly seeking Him. The prophets wrote, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign. Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.” God made His plan expressly clear to a handmaiden near Nazareth. After a visit from Gabriel, the angel of the Lord, Mary understood that she would bear the Son of God, the one foretold to redeem mankind from his sin.

Mary’s response to this news:
My soul magnifies the Lord
My soul blesses my God and Creator
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior
My soul magnifies the Lord
