Mary' expectations


On March 25th, the Church celebrates the special feast of the Annunciation. It is a time to stop and remember that God became a human being Jesus - the Incarnation - and that Mary was his mother. 

That event continues to be remembered every day by the prayer called the 'Angelus'.

The prayer begins by recalling the Angel Gabriel's greeting to Mary, telling her she is to be the mother of Jesus. 


Imagine that you are Mary. Write a diary extract which outlines ?your expectations of bearing the Messiah and the range of ?emotions you are feeling on being the mother of Christ. Include ?how such expectations, emotions and faith help shape your life.


You can look at the example below to help you if you want to.
