God came as a child, inviting us to draw close to him. St. Francis, whose joy over the Nativity of Our Lord, brought us the idea of re-creating that beautiful birth-scene in our homes and churches. Witnesses to Christ’s birth include: Mary & Joseph, Shepherds, Kings, angels and animals. But which witness might we be in this celebration? Also, what is the connection between the angel’s promise of peace and our world today? The Sacred Scriptures will be the basis for our reflection.

Whenever we say the Hail Mary, and as part of the Angelus, we repeat the words of the Angel Gabriel’s Announcement to Mary that she would bear the Savior in her womb. Did she realize then that she would nurse Him as an infant/toddler, and then nurture and accompany Him through the 33 years of His earthly life? She was Jesus’ most faithful disciple, even with Him at his cruel death on a cross, and burial. She surely understood that her
Son would rise from the dead on the third day. I wonder if she was waiting at the tomb with new garments and some food. Scripture does not say.
