Jesus was an embryo

On 31st March we celebrated the Solemnity of the Annuciation, when the Angel Gabriel came to Mary and asked if she would consent to being the mother of the Messiah. She gave her Fiat-her yes to God and the Holy Spirit overshadowed her. At that moment The WORD was made flesh and dwelt amongst us. The word became a zygote. He was a single celled person with all His DNA written into Him. He already had His bloodgroup, eye colour and so on written into Him.

He began to form more cells. Jesus grew in just the same way as we all grew from day 1.

It is a week later and today could be called Holy Implantation Day.

Jesus implants, snuggling into the womb of His blessed mother. (And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus).

Without these hidden days we would not have had our Messiah and He could not have saved us.

Remember this when scientists and media pundits tell you it's just a few cells. It doesn't hurt to experiment and destroy them.

All those children are being murdered. Every child is a made in the image and likeness of God because He creates and we procreate. God came to us as fully human and fully divine and He grew as any man will grow from zygote onwards.
