Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23

Mary’s birthday is one of only three celebrated in the liturgical year, placing Mary in the company of John the Baptist and her son, Jesus. The long form of Matthew’s Gospel today begins with the genealogy of Jesus. There are unusual and very human characters in the line of David paving the way for Jesus’ humble, human birth.

Your wanting to dwell with us in human form says so much about your love for us. Thank you!
