During the season in which we celebrate Christ’s birth, it is natural to want to be more like Him, to try to live the way He lived—selflessly and generously. But how did Jesus Christ come to be who He was? How did He come to embody these attributes that we try so hard at Christmastime (and should try all the time) to emulate? As the literal Son of God, He received the gift of mortality from his mother, Mary. Mary would have been the one to teach Him to walk and talk. She would have been the one to dry His tears and smile when He laughed. Hers would have been the face He first saw expressing the love of God.

Mary—called upon to nurture the Savior of the world—is a remarkable example of quiet, resilient faith and courage in the face of adversity. As we celebrate Christmas, it is fitting to consider what we know about Mary in the Nativity story and determine what characteristics qualified her for her tremendous calling. What was it about her that made her capable of such responsibility? What might we learn from Mary that will help us in our own journeys?

In this small-size gift book, Mary Holland McCann explores lessons for today from Mary, the mother of Jesus.
