"You shall conceive and bear a Son and give Him the name Jesus. Great will be His dignity and He will be called Son of the Most High." —Luke 1:31-32= "VÀ NÀY ĐÂY BÀ SẼ THỤ THAI, SINH HẠ MỘT CON TRAI, VÀ ĐẶT TÊN LÀ GIÊ-SU, NGƯỜI SẼ NÊN CAO CẢ, VÀ SẼ ĐƯỢC GỌI LÀ CON ĐẤNG TỐI CAO".

Today we remember the astonishing fact that God became a baby — a tiny human being attached to the wall of a teenage girl's uterus. The almighty, infinite God became human flesh smaller than your fingernail. No one ever imagined it or prayed for it.

God's Incarnation was so astounding that to the present day we don't know what to think of it. Why would He do such a thing? The only response we can make to the mystery of the Incarnation is: "God is Love" (1 Jn 4:16). He does the unimaginable because He is Love. He became a man because He is Love. He let Himself be crucified and put to death because He is Love. He gives us His Body and Blood in Holy Communion because He is Love.

The announcement of the Annunciation is: "The virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and shall name Him Immanuel" (Is 7:14). The Holy Spirit came upon Mary and the power of the Most High overshadowed her, hence her holy Offspring was called Son of God (Lk 1:35). "The Word became flesh" (Jn 1:14). Love became a man. Alleluia!

Prayer: Father, thank You for loving us so much as to give Your Son so that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life (Jn 3:16).

Promise: "Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son." —Is 7:14

Praise: Alleluia! God so loved the world that He sent His only Son to us (Jn 3:16).

(We offer a retreat entitled Spiritual Warfare: The Battle Belongs to the Lord! The dates are April 8-10. Knowing that there is a battle for everyone's eternal soul is the first step in responding to the Lord's call to stand firm and be not afraid.
