What was Mary Thinking One Week Prior to Giving Birth to Jesus?

In the liturgical calendar of the Latin Church, December 18 has been known as the Expectation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Although it is not currently in the liturgical calendar, I first came upon this feast in 2013 after reading through an old missal that was given to me as a gift. As someone that has a love and devotion for the Blessed Mother, I found the feast to be fascinating and took it upon myself to learn more about it.

To learn more about this Marian feast and read the first of this article, head on over to EpicPew.
