The prequel: we go back 9 months

  This is what happened as Mary tells it:

   “One day, I was on my own at my parents’ house.  I was engaged to be married to Joseph but still living with my mother and father. I was looking forward to the day when Joseph and I would be living together. Suddenly, the room was filled with an angel, bright with light. I wasn’t expecting an angel. I was bewildered, alarmed and scared.

  The angel said ‘Don’t be afraid any more’. I stopped being afraid but it was all very strange and unexpected. The angel said to me: “God has given you something very special to do. He will give you a very special baby.” The angel told me that his name was to be Jesus.

    I didn’t understand all this then. How could this all happen? But I was ready to be God’s servant and be apryt of his plan”

   Wasn’t Mary and amazing person! In a few days, she and Joseph will set off on their long journey to Bethlehen where Mary’s baby Jesus will be born. I wonder what that must have been like for them?
