Prayer diary Wednesday 1 Jan Dec 2014 – New Year's day Day (The Naming & Circumcision of our Lord/ Solemnity of Mary, The Mother of God)

After eight days had passed, it was time to circumcise the child; and he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb. 
Luke 2.21

Again we see the obedience of the Holy Family to God's law; for as the Son of God he had no need for the mark of the covenant to be placed upon his flesh; yet as the Son of Mary he did so, so that all righteousness might be fulfilled. Remember the obedience of Christ when next you think yourself above what the Church that Christ established asks of you.
