Mary was chosen and prepared by God to become the Mother of Jesus, and she accepted this role with a beautiful faith. We, too, have been chosen by the Lord and endowed with particular blessings to bring the Good News to the world. Will we accept the Lord’s call in our lives? May Mary’s example inspire us to say YES!
Mary’s “fiat” to the angel Gabriel cooperates with God’s plan of salvation. Mary serves as our example, Mother, intercessor and guide. She’s also the Queen of Heaven, and through her witness we are inspired to draw near to her Son.
The wedding at Cana in Galilee offers a glimpse at the relationship between Mary and Jesus…helping us to understand that when we allow the Lord to work in our lives we discover that what he wants is nothing less than the best.
Our knowledge of Mary flows from our knowledge of her Son, and her example teaches us how to be living witnesses in the face of adversity as we continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.
