Bonfigli’s Annunciation with St Luke taking notes…

75 verses in the first chapter of Luke’s Gospel detail the nine month pregnancy of Elizabeth and the happy birth of her son John (later to be known as ‘the Baptist’). Plus two angelic visitations, the Incarnation of the Son of God, the fulfillment of Messianic prophecy, two inspired canticles (still repeated daily by the Church) and – if that were not enough – a sublime miracle of the first order performed by none other than the Embryonic Christ Child! What a chapter!

When was the last time you visited this first chapter of the Gospel of Jesus Christ? It behooves every Christian to know it well. Pregnancy is best understood – with all due respect to the dignified practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology – first and foremost as a sacred mystery in the ever unfolding litany of the creative acts of our Loving God. Today pregnancy has become “a hot potato”, “a political football” because a jaded class of sophisticates believe that ending a life in the womb is better than engendering love within the heart. Our world today – and the Church today – need (more than ever) the first chapter of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, written they say, by a doctor…

Chapter Two is just as good if not better – it leaves you on your knees worshipping a little newborn Baby!

“Pregnancy is best understood – with all due respect to the dignified practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology – first and foremost as a sacred mystery in the ever unfolding litany of the creative acts of our Loving God.” I am totally in agreement with that statement.
