Gabriel Announces the Birth of Jesus to Mary/The Inspiration of Hope • December 7, 2014 • Message 2 in the Good News according to Luke series

The angel Gabriel told Mary the Holy Spirit would come upon her and cause a child to be conceived in her womb that would be the Son of God. This same Spirit inhabits Christians and Christ’s continued presence on Earth, his body, the Church. Just as Mary knew she was part of God’s plan but didn’t know what would happen (Would Joseph divorce her? Would her town ostracize hre? Or worse?) we can have our sure hope in God as an anchor for our soul.
