Dear <<First Name>>,
Mary's song of praise after she learns that she will be carrying the Christ child, known as the Magnificat, is a bold and beautiful testimony. She claims without hesitation that God takes the side of the poor and the vulnerable, rather than those that the world has already rewarded with strength, power and wealth. It echoes the messages Jesus himself will speak in the Sermon on the Mount.
In order to take the side of the vulnerable ones, God becomes vulnerable Godself, in the form of a newborn baby, flesh and blood like all of us. Such is the depth of God's love and solidarity with us. Such is the lengths God will go to to demonstrate love for us.
As we draw near to Christmas with this final Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve, join us on Sunday to hear Mary's song of praise and power, and know again God's presence with us, in vulnerability and love.
