Reflection

Today’s Gospel explains how Mary and Joseph fulfilled the Lord’s mission. How the Virgin Mary conceived a child through the Holy Spirit and how Joseph came to accept his role in becoming the father of our Savior. He believed and had great faith in Mary and the Holy Spirit. How is our faith in the Holy Spirit?
