Mary's Fiat - What a Simple Yes Can Mean
Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Many friends exchange gifts, but only Christ has given us His own mother, to be our solace and our refuge as we strive to follow in His footsteps. Are you in need of comfort, heavenly intercession, unconditional love? “Am I not here who am your mother?” Our Lady of Guadalupe promised to Saint Juan Diego, and she promises the same to us. Turn to her.
Through the ages, Christians of all walks of life have been inspired by Mary’s example. Wherever one finds true devotion to Mary (which consists primarily in the imitation of her “Yes” to God, not just in pious expressions and pretty pictures), one finds as well a passionate love for Jesus Christ, the Savior. She accompanied Him on every step of His earthly sojourn, and she accompanies His little brothers and sisters (that’s us) with equal love and concern.
The Greatest Love is founded upon the greatest Yes.
