ABC Wednesday - V is for the Virgin Mary


This week, ABC Wednesday focuses on the letter V. As I sat looking at the Christmas tree last night, with the lights glittering, the perfect V presented itself.

Without the Virgin Mary to accept the burden placed on her, Jesus and the Christmas story would not have been. This young woman chose a difficult path, but the result was the birth of a child, still revered and honoured over 2000 years later.





This is my favourite creche - a hand- carved one.
