“Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.”
Listen today for the word God is speaking to you. Ask the Holy Spirit for the strength and courage to believe and say “yes.”
Read Luke 1:39-55.
We can learn a lot from the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary. When the angel appeared to her and told her she was going to have a baby, she believed what she was told, and her answer was “Yes.” Where is God inviting you? Are you ready to say “Yes”?
Mary’s response to the news that she was to be the Mother of God was a song of praise. Read or sing along with Mary’s prayer. When you finish, sit in silence, reflecting on Mary’s words of worship. Write your own canticle of praise for God’s presence and action in your life and in your family.
