‘Blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’ (Luke 1:45)

24th December 2018

Although Mary is the central figure in this gospel reading, we also consider the proclamation of Elizabeth. As Elizabeth testifies, Mary is blessed since she is the Mother of God, but Elizabeth also draws attention to the fact that she accepted in faith the call to be the Mother of God. She listened to the message of the angel and we know that she pondered many things in her heart as her precious son grew up. We too have the opportunity in this season of preparation to ponder prayerfully in our hearts what we are being called to be and called to do.
