The story of the Annunciation of the birth of Jesus is the witness of Mary’s “yes.” Mary responds freely and fully, therefore her “fiat” sanctifies her and the whole human family.

Every disciple who imitates Mary’s fidelity is well served. Mary’s complete devotion to God’s plan is a model for Christian discipleship.

Hail Mary, full of grace and full of freedom, hear my prayer. Ask your Son to send His Spirit to me so that I can imitate you in serving Him.
