“Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled." In accepting the will of God through the words of the angel , Mary is transformed from one of the voiceless to a prophet, from one of low stature to a woman of action.. She goes quickly to take care of her older cousin, Elizabeth, who is also pregnant, and the presence of the Spirit of God is evident when they meet.
How are you being transformed this Advent? How has God been revealing your purpose? Where are you being led to act?
Be aware of the Spirit’s presence in your interactions today. For nothing is impossible for and with God.
