Advent - Tuesday, December 16

Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. - Luke 1:30

We have heard these words again and again, but let us hear them as if for the first time. The angel says Mary is not to be afraid because God has an idea. That is enough to strike terror in any human heart. With good reason does Gabriel begin by reassuring Mary. Don’t we often share that feeling?

Let us take our fears in prayer to God this day, confident that He can restore peace to our souls.
