The Virginal Conception of Jesus by Patrick McCaskey

Matthew 1:18-24

Mary and Joseph were going steady.
After a dream, they were marriage ready.
God called Joseph to be Mary’s husband.
Jesus was a descendant of David.

The Holy Spirit conceived Jesus Christ.
Joseph named Jesus and took care of Him.
Joseph was an upright man who lived for
Righteousness without being self-righteous.

Mary was prepared to be God’s mother.
Joseph was the guardian of Jesus.
Matthew reaffirmed the virginity
Of Mary and Jesus’s divinity.

My high school prom date was a cheerleader
At Immaculate Conception High School.
