The Octave of Christmas & the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God • We continue to soak in the Christmas mystery. Wouldn’t it be great if every one of our homes was a little Bethelehem, a little Nazareth? Mary had the most deep and the most intimate relationship with God that we could possibly imagine. She wants us to have a deep, personal, and intimate relationship with Jesus too. Follow her example and ponder God’s good gifts in your heart.
