“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.” (John 1:14)
Reflection: Christmas, for which we are now preparing, is not simply the feast of the birth of Christ; it is the feast of His becoming human, the reality called the Incarnation.
Jesus was an embryo, a fetus, an unborn child. Life in the womb, which was already sacred because it comes from God, is now made even more holy, and worthy of our every sacrifice.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you lived for nine months within the body of the Virgin Mary. Give success to the efforts of all who believe in your Incarnation to protect every life in the womb. Amen.
