Following Jesus to Bethlehem

More Advent wonder and Christmas joy 
Immaculate Conception
Mary’s Savior

Mary needed the Savior she carried.
The mercy God saved her from the moment of her conception,
preserving her free of sin so she could stand at the foot of the cross.
As a candle gives light before and behind,
how much more the light of Christ
entering time.



Day  18:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” 
Jesus, your mother is the only human in history to offer you with God for the salvation of the world.

She must have been created with a capacity for love of souls like no other creature.
What inspirations do I deprive myself of by keeping a distance from her?

Jesus, help me trust and love your mother more like you.
