Bulletin Insert for 4th Sunday of Advent, December 19, 2021.
Description: The 4th Sunday of Advent shows Elizabeth and her unborn son, John, reacting to the nearness of the unborn Christ. This bulletin insert explains that we know that Elizabeth immediately understood that Mary was pregnant with the Lord, because the Gospel says she was filled with the Holy Spirit. But how could the fetal John understand? How could he leap for joy while still in the womb? While answering these questions, it includes the pro-life perspective: If it’s true that an unborn baby is not a person with a soul until it takes its first breath, as is claimed by many who believe that abortion is okay, how could the unborn John recognize the presence of the unborn Savior?
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for 4th Sunday of Advent, RCIA class, faith sharing groups, etc.
