She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he willsave his people from their sins.” All this too place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: Look, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.” Matthew 1:20-23

A voice cries out: In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord. Make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low, The uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed. Isaiah

17 MEMORY Look to the rock from which you were hewn, the quarry from which you were dug. Look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who bore you. Isaiah 50:1-2
