Judges 13: 2-7, 24-25, Ps. 71, Luke 1: 5-25

God’s mysterious ways

Hope of the barren,
mother of the new Samson
with power to save.
Your cousin Elizabeth
conceiving the Baptist
to prepare the way.
God’s mysterious plan
began with barren women
and a virgin’s consent.

“It is a mystery,” said the angel to Manoah
and his wife. What is the mystery? That God
uses a way not imagined by us to begin
his work of salvation.
God is hidden in our
ordinary lives using what we consider worthless
to achieve his will
