The Incarnation of Jesus - who is both the Son of God and the Son of Mary - helps us understand the way that God has drawn near to us. The bridge between the human and divine was made possible when Jesus - born of Mary - closed the gap between heaven and earth. God comes to us so that we may come to know God!
As we begin to move into a New Year, what gaps and obstacle are before us? As we begin to see the challenges in our lives, may we turn to the Son of Mary for the help and strength we need to face life with the conviction that God continues to reach out to us in love.
