I still marvel at the blind faith, simple trust and obedience of Our Blessed Mother when the angel appeared to her. Can you imagine what that must have been like for her?! And she said Yes without hesitation.
And I wonder...
Do I hesitate to say yes to things out of my comfort zone?
How can I expand that zone?
My trust often wavers….how can I strengthen it, without going back to the memories of a time when all my trust was in Jesus….and in the end it seemed as if Jesus abandoned me?
Blind faith is another puzzle. I think all of us put blind faith into practice every day…when we get up and go through the day, knowing (assuming) we will accomplish that which we set out to do. It doesn't compare to the depth of Mary's blind faith experiences.
Finally, how can I prepare for this holy season of anticipation? How can I best be ready for the birth of Our Lord? What gift shall I bring for the newborn baby in the manger?
What are you called to do this Advent?
Blessings on the journey…….
