Grace and Mercy

Daily reading: Luke 1:26-55
Sunday December 18, 2016

Focus passage: When the angel came to her, he said, “Rejoice, favored one! The Lord is with you!”  Luke 1:28

We have taken time to ponder and pray; to join in God’s desire for our world to be filled with hope, peace, joy and love. 

Advent is a time of active waiting.  We have been preparing ourselves spirituality during this time to be open to God coming to us in a new way.  Today’s passage focuses on Mary and on her response to God’s activity in her life. 

The passage centers upon this question, what happens when we encounter our God of grace and mercy?

Prayer: Come, Lord Jesus,  in our Advent waiting.  Amen.
