Mary and the Incarnation: Tuesday, December 15, 2015

J.M.J. As Advent soon gives way to Christmas, we refocus our attention on Christ and His Incarnation.

Truly, the Incarnation--the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity becoming flesh in the chaste womb of the Virgin Mary--occurred nine months before the Birth of Jesus. Our Lord became incarnate of the sinless Mary when she spoke her fiat.

We cannot overestimate the continuing importance of the Incarnation, which was the act whereby the Logos, that is, the Word of the Father came to dwell among us.

As the Prologue (1:1-18) of the Holy Gospel according to Saint John declares, "And the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Father's only Son, full of grace and truth." (verse 14)

Let us rejoice with Mary in this Truth!
