For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been
conceived in her.  She will bear a son and you are to name 
him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.
 - Matthew 1: 20b-21 (Today's gospel)

Statue of Mary with Child, Spain

 “The modern world’s feverish struggle for unbridled,
often unlicensed, freedom is answered by the bound,
enclosed helplessness and dependence of Christ:

Christ in the womb,
Christ in the Host,
Christ in the tomb."

Caryll Houselander
