Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23:

Matthew’s Gospel is unique in that it begins with the genealogy of Jesus followed by the infancy narrative. We celebrate Mary’s birth, one of only three “birthdays” celebrated in the liturgical year placing Mary rightly in the company of John the Baptist and her son, Jesus. There are unusual and very human characters in the line of David paving the way for Jesus’ humble, human birth.

Dearest Mother, from your very beginning you were a part of God’s great plan. I pray to be as trusting as you. Pray for me.
