From Fr. Imbelli over at dotcommonweal comes this gorgeous and unusual 14th century Madonna of Childbirth.  The artist is simply known as the Master of the Madonna of Childbirth.

It reminded me of a Christmas card from a friend and fellow CSI teacher that I received last night which shows him embracing his wife in the last stage of her first pregnancy.  (She is due in early January.)

And here we are in the last weeks of Advent, in the last weeks of the year.

For those of us who aren't physically pregnant, how will Christ be birthed in us in 2011?

What great gift is the Holy Spirit about to give the world through us in the year to come?  Am I ready?  Will I say "yes"?
