Strangely, of all the women in the genealogy of Jesus, we know less about Mary’s background than all the others. Nonetheless, Mary has been cemented in the collective memory of God’s people as she played a momentous role in the life of Jesus from birth to death. On this Christmas Eve, we will briefly explore Mary’s role in birthing Jesus, who would be the Hope of all humanity, the Peace on earth, the Joy of human’s desiring and the Love of God personified.
