As we approach Christmas we invite you to imagine Jesus from Mary's point of view - proud of her son, in awe of his gifts and mission, guided by her love for him. This year, experience Christmas with Mary as we begin at the end, with Mary at the Crucifixion and Resurrection; travel back in time as she witnesses Jesus' life and Ministry; and end at the beginning, with the Christ Child born in a stable, Mary's beautiful baby.
