Day 15: Advent Journey With Mary

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.

“Waiting patiently in expectation is the foundation of the spiritual life.” ~Simone Weilmary adoration_orig

For Reflection: Why do you think this is so? How is the spiritual life demonstrated in the excerpt from “A Woman Wrapped in Silence”. Note the phrase from today’s quote, “waiting patiently in expectation”. How does Mary demonstrate this in the excerpt? To what extent has my current Advent been marked by “patient expectation”? In addition to the coming of the Christ Child, is there something else for which I have been waiting? What is it? How can this “advent” be a time of spiritual growth for me as I wait? 

Watch the above video “Holy Mary, Mother of God, Part 3 with Dr. Edward Sri.  What does Mary’s role as Mother of God mean for you with regard to her predestination?  Her union with the Holy Spirit?  Her Immaculate Conception?  Her conformity to the will of God?  Her perfection of discipleship?  Journal your thoughts and insights.
