The first Christmas … a holy event.
Mary, a young girl — a teenager — was on the threshold of adult life. She was promised to be married. Mary was dreaming of what might be when she receives word that rocks her world: You have been chosen by God to become a mother. And the child she was to bear, she was to share with the world. Imagine Mary— a young girl who was probably excited, likely scared. Honored, to be sure, and confused. And through it all she remained open. Mary was called to host this holy event.
