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.
“The Blessed Mary certainly did the Father’s will and so it was for her a greater thing to have been Christs’s disciple than to have been His mother, and she was more blessed in her discipleship than in her motherhood.”
Consider this quote in light of Luke 11:27-28. How did Mary’s discipleship begin at the moment of the Annunciation and continue throughout her life? To what extent does your discipleship mirror hers? Formulate a new year’s resolution to help you grow in this way in the coming year.
