The ancestry of Jesus is the prologue to the Gospel of Matthew. This genealogical recitation of the Davidic heritage of Jesus teaches us that God’s love is for everyone.

Sinner and saints are saved by Jesus. There is in none of us so much evil that there is not some good, nor in any of us so much good that there is not some evil.

O God, may I be saved by Your Love. May the coming birth of Jesus remind the world that Your Love is for everyone.
