FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
Luke1 1:26-38
The Dominican theologian Meister Eckert said that all of us are “meant to be mothers of God [for] God is always needing to be born.” Today we remember Mary’s encounter with Gabriel and her acceptance of God’s call to her to be the mother of God’s Son; may we be inspired by her generous, trusting yes to God in our own compassionate, selfless response to Gabriel, in whatever guise and situation we meet him.
