Homilies: 4th Sunday of Advent, Year B

My homily for the 4th Sunday of Advent (Year B) as preached during the 5.30 pm Saturday Evening Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were 2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8-12, 14, 16; Romans 16:25-27; Luke 1:26-38.

“The angel’s message to Mary is not just a revelation about what God will do, but combined with Mary’s simple ‘yes’ it becomes the moment when God is joined with human flesh in the body of Mary, as the Eternal Word takes on human form in her womb.”
