“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:15)
Reflection: Life is victorious over death. This is one of Scripture’s most basic themes. The victory of life is foretold in the promise that the head of the serpent, through whom death entered the world, would be crushed. The promise is fulfilled when a mother, Mary, gives birth to a child, Christ, who destroys death.
Prayer: Lord, I renew my confidence today that your promise to us will continue to be fulfilled as your Kingdom of Life grows in the world. Amen.
