March 25 – The Annunciation


listenHoly Spirit, at the Annunciation, You spoke to Mary through an angel to invite her to participate in the plan of salvation.  Though she questioned how it was possible for her to become the mother of the Messiah, and she knew she faced rejection from Joseph and others, she gave You her yes.  With the help of her prayers, I want to become fully willing to say yes to my part in giving Christ to the world.  Encourage me when I don’t understand what You’re asking.  Bless me with the grace of hearing the call at my own time of “annunciation” and the courage to trust in Your plan.  Let it be done unto me according to Your will.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for me.  Amen.
