Mary did you know?

Mary did you know that your baby boy would….. is the theme of this song.

This video is worth the 4 minutes as we prepare for the birth of this infant.

Mary of course could not have known all these things were to happen to her baby boy, she ponder many of them in her heart as they unfolded.

One question for this week’s homily is: Do we have room in our hearts for this infant who will grow into the king of the universe?

    One of my favourite songs, haven’t seen this video before.

    “Did you know that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
    This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.”

    Wasn’t Mary already conceived and born Immaculate???

    Sadly, these are lyrics from an evangelical Christian who denies the sinlessness of Mary.

    Thanks for your e-mail. It lead me to look into the song in a bit more detail and I find that opinion on it is, as with most things, all over the map. I can find Catholics with very harsh opinions on the meaning behind the song writers intent and others who want to discuss it with a more open mind as to what Mark Lowry (the composer) was trying to say with his lyrics. Mark is a Baptist and I guess it would be correct to call him evangelical. You are correct to assert that Mary is a point we as Catholics differ with many of our fellow Christians on and that is a great sadness to be sure.

    The line you highlight, “Did you know that your Baby Boy has come to make you new? This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.” raises some interesting questions-Thanks for the comment.
