Sunday's Homily Excerpt -November 20, 2022, Fr. Marc Dunaway.

This Feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple signals our approach to celebrating Christmas. It emphasizes that Mary prepared herself to become the Mother of God. We also need to prepare. Christ needs to be born in our hearts. Christ in Bethlehem was born in a stable. If He will be born in us, we need to clean out the stable of our hearts. They need swept and cleaned. They are full of all kinds of stuff. The season of Advent calls us to prepare.-

Excerpts from Christian writers Past and Present

On the Gospel for the Feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple: 'Blessed is the womb that bore you...' - Christ has made for all of us us a wide way to this same blessedness, and not only women, but men also may tread it. It is not the intense pain of giving birth that makes such a mother blessed; it is this: the way of obedience. - St. John Chrysostom
