Readings: Isaiah 7:10–14; Psalm 24:1–2, 3–4, 5–6; Romans 1:1–7; Matthew 1:18–24
In this week’s video, Tim Gray explores how Joseph and Mary each responded to God’s call and how we can emulate them as we prepare ourselves for the Incarnation. He shares his love for Handel’s Messiah and traces its use of the Old Testament to reveal Mary’s special role as the virgin who bore a son, Emmanuel.
Reflection question: What stands out for you in the way Joseph treated Mary after he found out she was pregnant? How can you follow his example when faced with a difficult situation?
