Rosary Reflection: The Annunciation
Mary, a young girl of 13 is visited by the angel Gabriel.
“Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.”
Luke 1: 28
She was frightened, yet trusting. This shows that she was in the habit of praying. She was in the habit of trusting God to take care of her. She was in the habit of expecting God to speak to her. Because she was prepared for this visit from the angel, she had the courage to say YES to God’s request.
Lord God, help me to pray, to trust, and to expect. Thank you for Mary’s YES. I also say YES this day with the same conviction and courage as Mary. Your kingdom come, your will be done. Use me as You will.
