Roc Homily – Solemnity of Mary 2017 (fin)

solemnity-of-mary   Finally!

As we saw earlier, some shepherds were takers and not givers.  And the sign of hope for them (us!) was that they came to THE Shepherd.

For us, can we recognize how we take without giving?  And come to the Shepherd?

And Mary “engaged, debated, made war against” all she had seen and heard.  That’s how the Greek verb is translated in most places.  And this is hopeful!

You’ll meet a new friend, Emily, about 3-4 months old.  Mary pondered, debated about the Gift given but not yet fulfilled, which is what the shepherds saw – and praised God!!!

Happy New Year!  Happy Hope!
