Do you find yourself pondering a lot, at this time of year, about Jesus and his family ?
Many of my thoughts are about Mary, how she gave birth to Jesus, and also raised him. I think of her as she fed him, watched him learn to walk, washed his clothes, and did all the things that moms do for their children.
As a grandmother, I also remember that Jesus had grandparents. Mary’s parents were Ann and Joachim. Most protestant Christians are not familiar with them, but they are part of Catholic tradition. We remember that tradition transmitted the faith long before the Bible was written.
I was reading a very interesting post the other day about the book of Hebrews, and I remembered that this book of the Bible narrowly escaped being removed from the Bible by Martin Luther, who discarded other parts of the traditional Catholic Bible.
It has been 12 months since I started blogging.
It has been very satisfying, especially reading your inspirational posts.
I hope you have enjoyed learning a bit about Newfoundland, surely one of the friendliest places on the planet !
It is also my prayer that perhaps I have helped to create a bit more unity amongst everyone.
This is my last blog post of the year.
I wish you all a blessed and holy Christmas Season.
