SUNDAY’S GOSPEL — Sunday, December 24

Author: David Dziena ~ December 11, 2017


Luke 1:26–38

In Sunday’s Gospel, the angel Gabriel disturbs Mary with the words, “The Lord is with you…. You have found favor with God.” Mary wonders what those words mean. She wonders, too, how she can become a mother since she is still a virgin. Mary’s yes to God is an act of faith. The Gospel is also an invitation to us all to say yes to God’s call and to show by our lives that, in Jesus, God becomes Emmanuel—God with us.
