Advent Catechism

Advent Catechism, week 5:

Ready to give birth, Mary and Joseph were forced to return to Bethlehem.
Unable to find room at the inn, their only option was to stay out in the stable.
After giving birth, Mary wrapped the child in swaddling cloths and placed Him in a manger.
Fulfilling hundreds of years of prophecy, Messiah is here; His name is Jesus.
The wait is over and the silence is broken God is with us.

Scripture readings: Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-5; Daniel 2:31-35, 2:44
