This weekend the Church enters into the final moments of Advent. In the Gospel, Mary encounters the Angel Gabriel who brought Her the message that would forever change her life and the history of the world. In that simple, yet profound moment, Mary offered Herself completely to God. She said, in humility: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Let us allow Mary’s words be our words this day. Let us offer ourselves to God, completely and without reservation. In a few hours, Jesus will be born. Are you prepared?
“Come, Lord Jesus!”
