#Advent – Mary, Mary, Mary

Today as Catholics around the world honor Mary, the mother of Jesus, Virginia is contemplating her “yes” to God, her openness to be for God and letting God in her be for others…

“How much we can learn from Our Lady.  She was so humble because she was all for God.  She was full of grace and she made use of the almighty power that was in her – the grace of God.  The most beautiful part of Our Lady was that, when Jesus came into her life, immediately she went in haste to Elizabeth to give Jesus to her and her son.  And we read in the Gospel that the child ‘leapt with joy’ at this first contact with Christ.  Our Lady was the most wonderful wire.  She allowed God to fill her to the brim, so by her surrender, ‘be it unto me according to thy word,’ she became full of grace which she went to pass on to John.  So let us ask God to use us now to go round the world, especially in our own communities, and continue connecting the wires of the hearts of men to the current, Jesus.” Mother Teresa (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

grace, peace & faithfulness

      Thank you, Debbie. When I took that picture in Bethlehem (where I lived for a time many, many years ago) I had no idea the light was reflecting like that until the photos came back from the lab (this, before digital photography!) Treasured picture ever since. Advent blessings to you (& hugs!) 🙂
