This is revised from a previous Christmas blog for my readers...
What do you know about Christmas?
If you are Christian or Catholic, you probably know the story of how Jesus came to earth as a baby in a manger, and began his earthly life like all of us did.
But what if you really think about what life must have been like for Mary & Joseph, who weren't even married at the time, and this was shocking news to them that they were about to have a child, through "immaculate conception" - that God himself divinely placed that tiny baby in Mary's 14-year-old womb. The angel said to Mary and Joseph, "Don't be afraid - the Lord is with you. This baby you are carrying will be the Savior of the world..." But how is this possible? How can this be believed?
We can't know with our human minds how the divine nature of God was placed in this tiny baby, but we can celebrate the mystery and amazing grace that Mary felt in these times through this song, Christmas Hallelujah (the song Hallelujah with Christmas lyrics :)
