Go to and listen to Matthew 1.1-25 about the birth of Jesus.

And check out this background taken from "What are We Hoping For?" by Daniel Harrington, S.J, PhD   

"Look  the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him 'Emmanuel,' which means 'God is with us.' " (Matthew 1.23)

  Every child is (or should be) a sign of hope. That a virgin woman should conceive and bear a child is not especially unusual. But that such a woman should remain a virgin because this conception is through the Holy Spirit is very, very unusual. And that her child should be the presence of God among us (which is the meaning of the two Hebrew words that make up "Emmanuel') is even more remarkable. This is no ordinary child. As Emmanuel, this child is the basis of Christian hope.
