Jesus doesn’t deny that Mary is blessed. However, He goes on to say that any one of us is more blessed than Mary if we hear God’s word and obey it.
Third Sunday of Advent
Scripture: Luke 1:26-38
In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
