6.         The Angel said to her, “Fear not Mary, for you have found favor with God; behold you shall conceive in your womb and shall bring forth a son and             you shall call his name Jesus.”

7.         Mary said to the Angel, “How shall this be done because I know not man?”

8.         And the Angel answering, said to her, “The Holy Spirit shall come upon you and the power of the most High shall overshadow you.”

3.         And thinking that Jesus was in the company, they came a day’s journey, and sought him among their relatives and acquaintances.

4.         After three days they found him in the temple of Jerusalem.

5.         Jesus was sitting in the midst of the doctors hearing them and asking them questions.

6.         And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers.

7.         Mary said to him, “Son, why have you done this to us?  Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.”

8.         And Jesus said to them, “Why were you looking for me?  Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”

9.         And Jesus went down with them, and came to Nazareth and was subject to them.

10.       And His mother kept all these words in her heart.
