Pray with Mary pray to God that His word will be done.

4th Sunday of Advent Year (B)

2 Sam. 7: 1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16; Psalm 88; 1 Rom. 16: 25-27; Luke 1: 26-38

Read: “Go and tell my servant David: ‘When your time has ended and u are resting with your fathers, I will raise descendants after you, a race descended from your bosom. Your family and your kingdom will remain intact for ever before Me’ ”. “ Do not be afraid Mary, because you have found grace before God. See, you will give birth and will have a son whom you will name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called Son of the most high, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father”.

Pray: Pray with Mary pray to God that His word will be done.

Reflect: Like Mary, we too found grace in God. He had faith in Mary and, through her, He wanted to come amongst us as our Saviour. Perhaps God’s plan for us is not that great, however God still wishes to make Himself present in us and in others through us. We, like Mary, are a ring in the chain of God’s plan. See, until the arrival of the Saviour through Mary, how many persons formed part of God’s plan: “The Lord God will give him David’s throne; and will reign over the house of Jacob for ever”.   

 Act: Every human being is called to give birth to God. Ask yourself “How can I give birth to Jesus in my life and in the life of others?”
