God’s angel visited the Virgin Mary and offered her God’s favour to bear the Son of God. Once she accepted the favour, she had to endure much hardship. That is how God’s miracle usually works – to benefit many through the suffering of one. In this and every Christmas season, we are called by God to manifest Love for the world. It requires much courage from us and willingness to endure hardship.
