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.
“God the Father communicated to Mary His fruitfulness, inasmuch as a mere creature was capable of it, in order that He might give her the power to produce his Son and all the members of His Mystical Body.”
~St. Louis Grignion de Montfort
How does this quote illustrate the efficacy of Mary’s surrender? What aspect of His own power has God entrusted to her? What does this say to me about the potential efficacy of my surrender to God and my call to spiritual maternity?
