Mary, the Mother of God

What a great celebration we have today!

Brothers and sisters:
When the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son,
born of a woman, born under the law,
to ransom those under the law,
so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Galatians 4:4

What kind of God comes is incarnated as the child of a human? Well, our God.

So what kind of human is worthy of this kind of relationship with the creator of the universe?

Pure.

Holy.

And faithful to her role in human history.

She is the best example of how I should be in my life. Yes, I have a different role – and there are parts of that I won’t even know until after I die.

But Mary didn’t know either – just some cryptic comments from the angel Gabriel.

Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.

Luke 1:31-33

She is worthy to bring God into the world.
