Becoming the Incarnation

Lk. 1:389-45  Adrienne von Speyr says that “Mary’s pregnancy is a period of unbroken contemplation, of continual attention to the Son. And yet it is a time of action, for she wnet to Elizabeth in order to bring the Son to her, the gift she had received fgrom God to hand on to others. .”  and William Barclay said:” If we are to accept the teaching of Jesus at all, then the only test of the reality of a one’s religion is his attitude to others. The only possible proof that one loves God is the demonstrated fact of love of neighbor.”
  – William Barclay (1907-1978), In the Hands of God
I have been told I have a gift of “opening my life enough to let people in”/  To me that is what Jesus calls all of us to do–to be the incarnation to our brothers and sisters–and yes that is painful, and you open yourself to crucifixion, but also to resurrection. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
