Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
March 25, 2019 – Monday
Gospel: Luke 1:26-38
Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord
“I am the Lord’s servant. May it happen to me as you have said.” (Luke 1:38)
In this response of Mary lies the secret of her deep wisdom and spirituality: she knows who she is in front of God and abandons her life to His will while carrying in her heart the words of Angel Gabriel during the Annunciation, “Hail favored one! The Lord is with you.” Through Mary’s fiat, we are given the confidence that each of us is a “favored one” – called to give birth to Christ in our family , workplace, and community.
Let us ask our Mother to transform our fear to fiat so that like her, we may give our daily YES to His will to carry Christ in our humanity.
