Mary bore the Light of the world.
Week 3 - A theme of Joy
The third Sunday of Advent: Joy. The amount of emotions that went through Mary's head when she found out she would carry the Messiah must have been incredible. Excitement. Anticipation. Perhaps nervous because that's a lot of pressure? We don't know all of those, it doesn't really say in the passage. But what we can see in Luke 1:46-55 (Mary's Magnificat) is joy, Mary is overwhelmed with joy and favor as she considers the fact that God would choose to use her as the vessel for the Messiah. Let's reflect this week on a theme of during this third week of Advent.
