In her YES at the Annunciation, Mary gave her entire life so that the mystery of the Incarnation could be accomplished. In accepting that God would make use of her, she has given us an example to follow. Our prayer, like that of Mary, gradually leads us to will what God wills for us. (Book of the Institute 21)
Mary is an important figure during this Advent season.
Think of any experience in your life where Mary was a source of strength and inspiration.
Mother of God, you did not know how the birth of your child would affect your life, may I trust in God’s presence to protect and guide me when I face uncertainty.
Mother of God, you cared for and nurtured the divine life within you, may I daily do the same through faithfulness to prayer and good actions.
