WATCH: #JesusIS... the son of Mary

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/25/16

The King of the universe entrusted himself to a woman who now prays for us all

Everyone comes to earth by way of a family, and Jesus Christ is no different — as Sister Miriam reminds us in this video from the #JesusIS series. Jesus is born of a woman, full of grace, fully alive. She is the woman who changed his diaper and picked him up when he fell. The King of the universe entrusted himself to humans, to his mother, and then entrusted us to her on the cross. As the feast of Mary, Mother of God draws near on January 1st, let us remember that Mary intercedes for us in a special way.
