Last Sunday’s sermon was about the hopes, expectations, and faithfulness of Mary, as the angel Gabriel announces to her God’s plan of salvation in the birth of Jesus.

A testimony that points to her need of the one she would carry in her own body. A testimony that directs our eyes to the God in whom she placed her trust. And a testimony that directs our eyes to the one in whom we find the forgiveness of sins and the promise of his kingdom of which there will be no end.
