Third Week in Advent

Genesis 49: 2, 8-10, Ps. 71, Matthew 1: 1-17

The pivot of history

Was it a lion you bore in your womb? His roar echoing down the ages; descended of Judah, ready to defend his own Son of David inheriting an eternal home. You carried the seed that gave meaning to their living.

Mary’s role as mother was the pivot of history.

May we value the role of motherhood and think of mothers on whom the preparations for Christmas can become a burden. Is there one near me I can help?
