The National Catholic Review
"A man of God came to me; he had the appearance of an angel of God, terrible indeed. He said to me, ’You will be with child and will bear a son. The boy shall be consecrated to God from the womb, until the day of his death’." Judges 13, 24-25 God, You spoke in ancient times about Jesus. He was always consecrated to you, till he died. Help me to appreciate him, understand him, love him, and be like him – consecrated in my baptism to be with him till I die. O FLOWER OF JESSE’S BRANCH, you have been raised up as a sign for all peoples; kings stand silent in your presence; the nations bow down in worship before you. Come, let nothing keep you from coming to our aid.
