4th Sunday of Advent

Posted on

Originally delivered on December 24, 1989

Readings: Isaiah 7:10-14, 10; Romans 1:1-7; Matthew 1:18-24

In this week’s Gospel, we hear how the birth of Jesus came about.  Joseph said Amen to marrying Mary, despite the impossibility of understanding how the Son of God was to be born through Mary.  Two ordinary people, Mary and Joseph, had the faith to say Amen. May we do the same, no matter how scary it may seem.  Will we say, “Your Will be done in me”?
