The Birth of Jesus – How did this incomprehensible miracle occur?

The angel Gabriel’s conversation with Mary continued…
You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
How did this incomprehensible miracle occur?
God acts in, through and beyond our knowledge and comprehension. He is beyond our capacity to understand his intelligence, purpose, creativity, goodness, justice and mercy.
Jesus we rejoice in your entry into our world… transposed from your majesty in heaven to a seed in Mary’s womb. How did this happen?  This miracle is so vast that only our faith can accept God’s most precious gift given in the form of a vulnerable baby in the womb of a trusted mother.
Part of our discovery of relationship with God is romance, and a big part of romance is mystery. So enjoy the mystery implicit in the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Enjoy the romance of faith in our heart relationship with Jesus.
We love you Lord and we thank you for the life of Jesus given on earth to rescue us from our sin and to grant us the assurance of everlasting life. Thank you Lord!
Thanks everyone for your love and support.
Every blessing for Christmas and the new year,
