Luke 1:26-38

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today is a wonderful feast day in the Church's calendar! It is where we honour the holiness and divine pre-selection of our Mother Mary. It is also a day of Hope and Faith as we look to Mary for example and guidance as we learn to reflect God's love in our daily lives.

Mary is our most loving and patient Mother who through Her unspoiled relationship with God shows us through example and guidance how we can grow to know God more intimately. She is the epitome of Christian Faith in her humble acceptance of God's will and her acceptance of the consequences of her 'Yes'.

We can look to Mary to understand the divine purpose in our lives and with her maternal love grow in strength and perseverance as we walk the path of discipleship.

Mary our most Immaculate Mother,
pray for us now
and at the hour of our death.
