Soon and Very Soon

Antiphon:  The time has come for Mary to give birth to her firstborn Son.

“How can this be?”

Not only a child.

But His.

The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And 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 the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” Luke 1: 30-33

“How can this be?”

A God who loved us so much.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

“How can this be?”

A love without measure.

“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”  John 3:17

“How can this be?”

A child should be born King.

“For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  Luke 2:11

“How can this be?”

That a child would save a World.

“She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”  Matthew 1:21

“How can this be?”

For anyone to refuse such a gift.

hugs n’ blessings to all those unwrapping the wonder of what you’ve waited for this Advent Season; as soon and very soon, we shall celebrate His great gift of love!
