Rosary Reflection: Readiness

Mary was ready to say ‘YES’ – her fiat – when the angel appeared to her.  What did a young 13 year old girl do to prepare herself for this?  She spent her days meditating on God and on his goodness.  Jesus said ‘YES’ to the sacrifice of the cross.  What did a 33 year old man do to prepare himself for this?  Okay, He wasn’t just man, but the human part of Him was afraid…  He spent His life in relationship with His Father, building His relationship, listening to Him and obeying Him, so that when the time came, He trusted His Father.  What can I do to be ready with my ‘YES’?  The same as them.  Daily prayer, daily trust, daily listening, quick ‘YES’.
