Mary is in the Pink

St. Matthews-in-the-City in Auckland, New Zealand designed a billboard for the Advent season that features Mary holding a positive pregnancy test. The Church said: "Christmas is real. It’s about a real pregnancy, a real mother and a real child. It’s about real anxiety, courage, and hope...Mary was unmarried, young, and poor.  This pregnancy would shape her future." That is true! Clearly, the billboard highlights the earthy, gritty, and "real" aspects of Christmas. What does this image mean to you this season?
