“Let it be with me according to your word.” - Luke 1:38
The ever-creating word of God is being invited into Mary’s life by her acceptance of God’s invitation. She could have said, “No.” She did not. She was ready if God had need of her to become part of what had never before happened. What a breathless moment in salvation history.
Can we make Mary’s word ours in our very different circumstances? Can we pray for that courage?
