Theme: Advent is a time of waiting and preparing for the coming of the Savior. Mary, the Mother of God, waits patiently for the birth of her Son and Savior, Jesus Christ to Whom she has given her life.
Grace: I pray for the grace of Marian surrender and anticipation of the Savior during this holy Advent and Christmas season.
“Thanks to her vow of surrender, everything is divinely disposed for this direct hold of God’s word over her.”
~Father Marie-Dominique Philippe, O.P.
Though Mary received a singular grace from God never to be repeated for all eternity, could it be that my surrender, seeking to mirror her own as closely as possible, could divinely dispose me to a greater hold of God’s word over me?
How would I most like to experience that hold? In what one way today can I cooperate with grace to make my surrender more like Our Lady’s?
