Do you really know what love is? Do you? Really? Looking at the story of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, there are plenty of examples of what love is, but Christ’s birth is also, in some ways, a story about what it means to love. Luke 1:26-38 details Mary’s encounter with the angel and her acceptance of her role in Christ’s birth. Mary shows a love that looks to God and a love that can truly bear all things.
