19 December 2021 - Fourth Sunday of Advent - The life of the mother of Jesus has been ignored in many Christian traditions. Yet Mary’s extraordinary trust and obedience should be an inspiration for us today. It is posited that she was Jesus' first disciple and -- in contradiction to the pop song -- she really does show us wisdom. Perhaps her most important contribution was to give an example for her son Jesus, who like his mother, was called upon to say “Yes” to the will of God.
Readings: Micah 5:2-5a; Psalm 80:1-7; Luke 1:39-55
