Greeting and Overview 
 Welcome! oday we have gathered to talk about a very special woman. Hername is Mary o Nazareth. When Mary was a young girl—maybe aboutas old as
[name o teen-aged girl in the audience] 
—she was asked by God tobecome the mother o God’s only son, Jesus. What a big request or such ayoung girl! But Mary knew that she could handle it with Gods help. Sheloved God and trusted that whatever God asked o her, he would be sure toguide and support her in carrying out his will.Tough God was always with Mary, as he is with us, Mary still went throughthe joys and struggles o lie that you and I encounter. She had a lovinghusband and relatives whom she cared about and visited even while she was pregnant. Who can tell me the names o her relatives?
(Elizabeth and  Zechariah)
Elizabeth was pregnant at the time, too. Who was her child, theone who helped prepare the way or Jesus?
(John the Baptist)
Once Jesus wasborn, Mary and Joseph had all the responsibilities that young parents today have. Tey had to eed him, protect him, and make sure he went to school.Tey had to teach him about his aith and about God the Father. What aresome other things that you think Mary did to take care o Jesus? Who arepeople in your lie who take care o you the way Mary took care o Jesus?Mary was important to Jesus just as each person you mentioned is importantto you. She helped Jesus become a loving and holy person just as our amily helps us become who we are.
Guided Meditation
Let’s take some time now to place ourselves back in the time when Jesus was achild. Imagine that you go to school with Jesus and count him as one o yourgood riends. Your parents know Mary and Joseph and oten get together with them to talk or pray or share a meal. o help us picture this in ourminds, let’s make sure we are all relaxed and sitting comortably. ake a deep
