Letter: In Brief

Sir: Last Thursday was Annunciation Day, when Mary was visited by the Angel Gabriel, ultimately resulting, so we're told, in Jesus' birth on Christmas Day. During the same week many modern couples were trying to conceive babies in hopes of their arriving on the Millennium. Does this mean Jesus was a week premature?
