about this study
God’s love for and faithfulness to us, even in our brokenness and imperfections. In the Old Testament, there are five major covenants that God makes with His people--found in the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David. Reading through their stories, we know that each one of these covenants is broken on the side of humanity; however, all of these covenants are ultimately fulfilled, not by fallen men, but by God Himself made man.
Advent is the time of preparing to meet our God face to face in the person of Jesus Christ. This Advent, we will be going through the covenants made with Abraham, Moses, and David to prepare our hearts for the Savior and King prefigured in each covenant.
We at HOM hope and pray that you will delve deeply into this mystery of Love that existed before time itself and that God is calling you to be a part of.
Happy Advent, dear sisters!
Love, Carissa and your Heart of Mary Team

Is it still Christmas? Today is the 5th Day of the Octave of Christmas, which is why we continue the message brought to us by the birth of the Christ Child.
It is all well and good to speak of carrying the Light of the Child of Bethlehem into the world when life feels good all around us.
If the birth of the Son of God calls us to action, what action is that? Today we celebrate St. John the Apostle and Evangelist.
The house has been cleaned, the packages wrapped and then opened, the company’s been fed, we’ve laughed and cried and shared new and old memories, the house is a mess again.
Today we celebrate the arrival of the King of kings!
Hello:) Happy 4th Sunday of Advent and a lovely Christmas Eve.May your Christmas be a beautiful reflection of what you would like 2018 to be, Faith, Family and Friends.
It’s likely we are all familiar with the three wise men, who arrived at the Nativity scene, even if only through the Christmas hymn “We Three Kings.”
While Luke’s Gospel focuses on Mary’s side of Christ’s miraculous birth, Matthew’s Gospel focuses on her husband, Joseph
Today we read the Genealogy of Christ found in Matthew’s Gospel. Now I know this reading can be difficult to focus on.
Today we look at the covenant God made with David. As we read yesterday, the Ark of the Covenant has been brought to Jerusalem and placed in a tent, where David sacrificed burnt offerings to the Lord.
The Ark of the Lord, also known as the Ark of the Covenant, was a tabernacle of sorts that housed the pot of manna
Today we begin looking at the third covenant in this study, the last covenant of the Old Testament of which Christ is the fulfillment--God's covenant with David

I had actually never made these connections before I started preparing for this study, but there are many similarities between Moses and Jesus

Hello, How is your Advent going?
Being a priest isn’t just a job. It’s an entirely new life for a man.
If you pray the Liturgy of the Hours, especially Morning Prayer, you’re probably very familiar with the Canticle of Zechariah.
I hate not being able to talk. Even though I consider myself an introvert, once you get me talking about something I love, I never stop. Just ask anyone who knows me.
The thought of sacrificing one’s own child is unimaginable. At the time that Abraham was asked to do this, I can imagine that child sacrifices were probably commonplace
There are many women out there who can probably relate to Sarah, who desperately wanted a child of her own.
According to Bishop Robert Barron from Word on Fire, a priest in the Old Testament was someone who performed a sacrifice, united divinity and humanity, and brought God and humans together. Before
