As Christmas approaches, the Church meditates on the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth known as the Visitation. This reflection by Ambrose is profoundly thought-provoking.

Gaudete Sunday, the third Sunday in Advent commands us to rejoice. But the gospel reading shows us John the Baptist in Herod's dungeon. What's this have to do with joy?

John the Baptist pointed out Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. We can't understand what this means without an understanding of Passover.
Behold the Lamb of God, said John the Baptist, speaking of Jesus. How did the blood of the Passover Lamb foreshadow Jesus and his sacrifice

Leo the Great says that the genealogy of Jesus recorded in the gospels of Matthew & Luke tell us something very important . . . the Creator of Time was born in time, but it was not just an appearance. The incarnation means he truly became human.
Leo says the genealogy of Jesus in Luke & Matthew show us that the Son took a full human nature, though he is fully divine & the Creator of time.

December 12 is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe . . . here's the story of the encounter between Mary & Juan Diego at Tepeyac, and Juan Diego and the bishop of Mexico. The miraculous image imprinted on the Indian's cloak or Tilma to this day cannot be explained by science.

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 . . . what it teaches us about grace & faith and why it is so important for all Christians, Protestant as well as Catholic.
The gospel of Luke present Mary, mother of Jesus, as the model of authentic, saving faith. Authentic Marian devotion imitates this virtue says Vatican II.
