“Mary said, ‘Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her.” (LK 1: 38)
Our world was created because God said the word and “so it was.” Today we celebrate a new creation, the beginning of the redemption and the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. Our Lady accepted the vocation announced by the Angel: “May it be done to me according to your word.” When we accept our vocations and when we say the same during our daily meditations, we are cooperating with God, bringing glory to His name.
“The Word of God became flesh and made his dwelling among us; and we saw his glory.” (Gospel Acclamation)
