“The shepherds went in haste to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds. And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them. When eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.”
Imagine the amazement of the shepherds when they arrived in Bethlehem.
What must have been their hearts’ experience?
Be aware today that you, too, may find Jesus in an unexpected place and notice what difference that effects in you.
Heritage word—The incarnation was part of the unfolding of God-life into space and time.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
