Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.” Matthew 1:23
How am I called to birth Christ into the world?
Mary’s story is our story. We are called, like her, to be Christ-bearers and witnesses that God is truly incarnated in our world. This is no easy task sometimes as we live and work in places that seem apathetic or even hostile to Christianity. Like Mary, saying a simple “yes” can be the hardest word we will ever speak and the most meaningful.
