Weekly Devotion – December 24thWeekly Devotions
By assenting to the invitation of the angel Gabriel, Mary changes the course of human history. Her unconditional “Yes” to God’s will untangles the knot tied by the sin of Adam and Eve.
Her example of fidelity and obedience serves as a model for us to follow as we seek the path of holiness and everlasting life. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas in a worthy manner, we ask the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
We ask her to pray with us and for us, that we might welcome the saving presence of the Lord into our lives and embrace Him as our Savior and King.
As she was privileged to hold the Lord Jesus in her womb and in her arms, so may we be fashioned by God’s grace into bearers of the Lord.
We pray together: St. Jude, you who loved Mary and cared for her after her Son’s death, bless my heart with true love and deep devotion to the Blessed Mother.
