Jesus Stories

An Angel Visits  Mary

There was a girl named Mary who lived in a village called Nazareth.

She was going to marry a carpenter named Joseph.

Mary was a wonderful girl.

One day, an angel  came to her.

"Greetings.  The Lord is with  you!"  the angel said.  "You will have a son and you will name him Jesus."

Mary was so surprised.

Mary knew that God had sent the angel to her.

"How can this happen?"  Mary asked.

The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will make this happen.  Your child will be the son of God."

"Let it be done to me as God wishes,"  Mary said.


Can you imagine that?

What would you have done?

What would you have said?

Do you think Mary trusted God?

Write to ME and let me know what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's pray:
Dear God,
Help me to trust you just as Mary did.
Help me to know what you are saying to me.
I ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?

You can find this story
Luke 1:26-38.

Write to me, please.
