A young girl, perhaps barely in her teens, kneels for evening prayer. Suddenly she is aware of a presence in her room. A brilliant personage stands before her and her hear trembles with her. "Fear not, Mary, for you are blessed above all women," the angel begins. The girl's eye adjust to the blinding light and the angel of God delivers the remainder of his stunning message. Mary's mission is to become the mother of the promised Redeemer. She accepts her commission, the angel fades from view, and Mary of Nazareth holds within her soul the greatest mystery of all eternity--that the Almighty God should become an unconscious babe and come to rest beneath a human heart. Joseph! Joseph her betrothed husband! How can she tell him? Should she tell him? Before long she won't need to tell him for the man has eyes. The entire village has eyes.
