When we read in God’s word about the miracles of God and Jesus there is always some involvement of people on earth contributing to the miracle in some way. The little boy who had the original fish and bread, the people who are sick and need healing and many more. Mary, the Mother of God, may be the second greatest contributor to saving the world, after Jesus. This song of the season helps us think about the questions many of us would have for her…as she was willing to surrender her life to God’s will. Thanks be to God for Mary the Mother of Jesus. Amen.
“But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.”
