“In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph of the house of David. The Virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, ‘Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!’ But she was greatly troubled at the saying and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son and you shall call his name Jesus.’ And Mary said to the angel, ‘How can this be since I have no husband?’ And the angel said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God for with God, nothing is impossible.’ Mary said, ‘Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word.’” Luke 1:26-38
Fiat, meaning “let it be done” in Latin.
Mary’s “yes” to the Lord has had a profound effect on my life. At 15 years old, Mary said yes to God’s will for her life - that she would become the mother of Jesus. This, to me, is truly amazing! I look up to Mary for many reasons, but this one sticks out to me. She didn’t argue or ask why this was happening to her. Instead, she accepted God’s will wholeheartedly. I try to remember this, not just during advent, but throughout the whole year. God is waiting for my "yes" to accept His will!
