I've made a big deal about Advent starting this weekend. And with the coming of Advent is the birth of our Savior, Jesus. He entered the world as we all do, small, pink, helpless. His Blessed Mother cared for him much the same as we do now, feeding, clothing, changing, guiding.

Imagine how the scenario would differ if Mary were to have Jesus now? Would we all look upon her as a liar since NO ONE could ever have a virgin birth? Yeah, sure, we'd say. You're a virgin. And I'm a drag queen named ChaCha.

Would Joseph step up to the responsiblities placed upon him by impending earthly fatherhood, or would he show up on Jerry Springer claiming that he was never WITH Mary and she wasn't HIS baby momma?

Would Mary have considered abortion an option? Even in her time, there were women (and it was women who held this knowledge) with herbs who could have caused the baby to die and be expelled. Had Mary not felt the moving of the Holy Spirit in her mind and the peace God offered her mind, would we call her the Mother of All now?

Mary, Queen of the World is a Pro Life model for our world. Whether we remember her love of life in her ancient times or picture her in our world now, she is the example of welcoming to new life we need to follow.

My ramblings all lead to this: New Life is precious, whether 1 minute old or unborn as each has that holiness of spirit by virtue of being made by God. I have linked this blog to the site to share my conviction that all life is precious and should be cared for as such. Take a minute and visit over there. Meanwhile, join me in saying the Hail Holy Queen prayer:

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our Life, our Sweetness, and our Hope.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To Thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate, Thine Eyes of Mercy toward us,
and after this our exile show us the Blessed Fruit of thy Womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God
hat we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
