Is 7:10-14, Ps 23:1-6, Luke 1:26-38

Mary our model

Two things about the Annunciation are very clear. First, Mary had little, if any, understanding of what Gabriel was saying and no idea of its consequences. She was “deeply disturbed” and thoroughly confused: “How can this be?”. But secondly, despite her lack of understanding and confusion she did know and understand one thing: her God, whom she loved deeply, and trusted completely, was asking her to do something that was very important. That was enough for her. Holy Mary, help us to follow your example.
