The fruit of thy womb

Today is the solemnity of the nativity of St John the Baptist. Which gets me thinking about the journey that our Holy Mother had during her pregnancy.

Can you possibly imagine the trail of wondrous miracles she experienced during those nine months? From the Annunciation, to the visitation of Elizabeth, and so on.

Luke 2:19 But Mary kept all these sayings, pondering them in her heart.


It’s one thing to read about the events two thousand years later, but Mary was living this in real time. She didn’t know how things would play out.

But she had faith in God. Unbelievable faith.

And that’s what I need to do with my life. It’s playing out, and I don’t know how it will come. But I trust that God’s plan will be the most amazing, wondrous thing that can happen.
