Let's talk about today's readings 12/24/08--vigil mass

Isaiah 62:1-5
Psalm 88
Acts 13:16-17.22-25
Matthew 1:1-25

The gospel is the geneology of Jesus and states it was 42
generations starting from Abraham.(14X3) I make the connection to Daniel 12:7 and the 42 months mentioned. After this time,
the power of the destroyer of the holy people would be brought
to an end. Isn’t that just what happened on the first Christmas?

The gospel then mentions Joseph’s dream and that when he
woke up, he took his wife. Was that before or after she went to
visit Elizabeth?

Did anything strike you about the vigil readings (not Midnight)?
