Christmas 2009

Each month, when my new issue of Magnificat shows up in the mail, I can barely contain my excitement! Today, it was finally time to open the plastic and take both booklets out to enjoy! Right away, I was stopped dead in my tracks while reading the first paragraph:

In the Revelations of Saint Bridget of Sweden, the Blessed Virgin Mary says, "When I was nursing my Son, he was endowed with such great beauty that whoever looked upon him was consoled and relieved of any sorrow he may have had in his heart. And so, many people said to one another, 'Let us go to see Mary's Son, that we may be consoled.'"

So, let us all go to see Mary's Son this Christmas...and may we all be consoled.
