A Good Read for Advent…

Many years ago,when I was in seventh or eighth grade, my friend Cathy Miller, who lived next door to me gave me  the book Two from Galilee, by Marjorie Holmes as a Christmas present. Since that time, I have read that book probably twenty times, always when Advent begins.

It was a turning point in my spiritual growth, because it made me realize that the story of Christ was not something that happened in another “more Heavenly” dimension, but a real piece of spiritual history. It made Mary stand out as a real woman, probably my own age when she was  given to Joseph and became pregnant with Jesus.  Her struggles and joys are shared in a way that draws me into the story every time.

I highly recommend it!
