FAITH BOOK

MARY, MOTHER OF GOD JANUARY 1, 2019

Numbers 6: 22-27; Galatians 4: 4-7; Psalm 67; Luke 2: 16-21

By: Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

"And Mary kept all these things,

Reflecting on them in her heart."

 

Reflection:

 

Mary stands with the world’s displaced and vulnerable. The store windows may romanticize the nativity scene, even make it look attractive – but we can’t. A stable, or cave is no place for a woman to give birth. A manger for animal food is not where any mother wants to place her newborn. Mary has much to ponder about God’s surprising and confusing ways!

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Has this Christmas season helped turn our eyes to the neediest families among us?

  • What can we do to relieve their confusion and distress?
