Christmas by way of Mary
The final week of the last year begins with the Solemnity of the Birth of Jesus, Son of God, on Christmas Day, 25th December 2010, and ends with the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, on New Year Day, 1st January 2011, the beginning of the first week of the New Year. There can be no better way to celebrate both Christmas Day and New Year Day and to commemorate the Christmas Week than to consider that "pilgrimage of faith in which the Blessed Virgin advanced, faithfully preserving her union with Christ" ('Mother of the Redeemer' 5). Together with Mary let us undertake this pilgrimage of faith as described so marvellously in the Infancy Narrative of Luke's Gospel.
