Then said I, “Behold, I come … to do Your Will, O God.” – Heb 10:7

Reflection.  As we approach Christmas, we ponder the childlike simplicity of Mary, the Mother of Jesus.  Her perfect act of surrender is a model for all Christians.  Mary said, “Be it done unto me according to your word.”  Her “Yes” given to God was total, and we are called to do the same.

Prayer.  Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
