Readings for today

The archangel Gabriel brings a message of joy to Mary. She was chosen by God. She was filled with grace so as to become the mother of the Son of the Most High. Mary consented to God’s will with her “fiat.”

Like Mary, all of us have been called by God for a purpose. Sometimes we give consent to God’s plan and will for us. At other times, we don’t, preferring to follow our own plan and will in the many decisions and actions we make in life. The difference between Mary and us is in our response to God’s will. If we put our lives in His hands and trust Him fully, only the best can happen to us. May we learn from the example of Mary and say “let it be done to me as God so desires.”

Spread the love!
