December 15

Luke 1:26-38

Zechariah was a priest who was not prepared to see an angel standing beside him.

Mary makes a wonderful contrast with Zechariah. Though Mary is a young girl, the angel's presence doesn't bother her as much as the angel's words:  What is all this about being "favored" or "the Lord is with you"?  When the angel explains what will happen, Mary, then, says, "Let it be with me according to Your Word."

Let us be like Mary and keep our hearts open to receive all the marvels that our God wants to give us, continuously showering us with blessings and benefits.

Each breath of life is precious and calls for thanksgiving. Every day is filled with wonders if we are ready to accept them.

Lord Jesus, as we get closer to receive the gift of Your birth, may Your Will be done in these days of celebration.
