God’s promises are all fulfilled by Jesus and in Mary.  The beauty of salvation history is that Our Lady models the perfect response to God’s plan.  As I live out my own discipleship, I can always count on Mary’s way as being the best way.  From the beginning her life plan is a perfect “yes.”

Jesus, thank you for the gift of your mother, Mary.  She is completely generous and perfectly holy.  In your plan to save me, she marks the way to say and live “yes.”
