Today’s Gospel, Reading Matthew 1: 1-25, is The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah.

On this day the Church commemorates the ancestors of Christ from Adam to Joseph the Betrothed. Christ’s full humanity meant not just that He possessed a human nature but that He had blood relatives, and that He came from a long family line.
