4th Sunday of Advent

Second Reading: "Elizabeth says: Blessed are you because you have believed.

You also are blessed because you have heard and believed. A soul that believes both conceives and brings forth the Word of God...

"Let Mary's soul be in each of you to proclaim the greateness of the Lord. Let her spirit be in each to rejoice in the Lord. Christ has only one mother in the flesh, but we all bring forth Christ in faith" (Saint Ambrose commenting on Luke 2, 19 etc.)
