Annunciation describes the event where God sent the angel Gabriel to ask Mary to become the mother of Jesus. The Gospel of Luke shows us that God is one with those who seem to be the poorest of people. The Gospel of Matthew shows us that Jesus is like the great leaders of the Old Testament and is the promised Savior of God.

Mary, the Mother of Jesus (Handbook, Pages 133135) God chose Mary, a human being like us, to be the mother of the Savior. Mary is called the Mother of God, because Jesus is God and she gave birth to him. God prepared Mary for her role as the Mother of God by keeping

her free from Original Sin from the moment of her conception. We call this truth the Immaculate Conception. Renata Sedmakova / Shutterstock.com Mother of God Think-Pair-Share Think: What do you think the artist of this painting is trying to tell you about Mary? about

of Myra, in Asia Minor (present-day Turkey and Greece). Many stories of Saint Nicholas generosity were preserved and passed down over the years. Stories about his generosity have inspired others over the centuries to give gifts in his name. This is how he became the inspiration for Santa Claus.
