The greatest event to ever happen in human history was the Incarnation of Jesus in the womb of Blessed Mother Mary. “And the Word became Flesh, and the Word was God.” Many may say the most important event was the death of Jesus on the Cross when He saved us from the devil and death. Others would insist the resurrection from the dead which gave us new life. But I contend that the moment when God took on flesh from the the Virgin Mary by the over powering of the Holy Spirit.
I say this, because it was at this first instant, of taking on human nature in Mary’s womb, that all of creation was eternally effected. Besides, there would have been no Christmas December 25 if 9 months earlier there had been no annunciation. There would be have been no preaching of the coming of the Kingdom of God. There would have been no miracles, no healing or exorcisms. There would have been no passion and death of Jesus. And there would have been no Resurrection from the dead or ascension into glory. It all pivots on the “yes” from the Virgin Mary when Archangel Gabriel announce that she would be the mother of the savior of the world.
So, God proposed to the Virgin Mary to be the Mother of God. God never imposes on anyone to do His will. He just proposes, we need to co-operate or not. How beautiful and humbly Our Lady responded with all her heart. Jesus was conceived in her heart before being conceived in her holy womb.
On the the feast of the Annunciation even in the Novus Ordo mass, all bend the knee at the words of the Nicene Creed when reciting the words, “was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human”. But at every Latin Mass that is offered on Sunday and special holy days, everyone bends the knee while reciting this phrase.
We also know that God was in the womb of Mary by the reaction John the Baptist. The “fetus”, John the Baptist, jumped for joy. A pretty human experience.
“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.” Luke 1:41-44 By this we know that the Holy Spirit inspired Elizabeth to call Mary the mother of my lord or the Mother of God.
This is the reason to protect all child from the instant of their birth. How can anyone be a christian and be “pro murder choice”. It is impossible. The devil loves killing everyone especially babies. He doesn’t do it directly. He uses his servants to do it.
God is the God of life. We Catholics have to defend each defenseless child in the womb. It is so good to be a traditional Catholic and save souls and babies lives. Go pray a Holy Rosary at an abortion mill sometime.
