About Today Readings

THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD.

Isaiah 7:10-14, 8:10. Psalm 39(40):7-11. Hebrews 10:4-10. Luke 1:26-38

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will – Psalm 39(40):7-11. 

‘Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.’

Today we are invited to meet Mary, a teenage girl called into motherhood and a plan beyond her imagining. She is terrified, yet somehow she says, ‘Yes!’ God’s dream for us is often much bigger than what we plan for ourselves. If we open our hearts fully in our relationship to our God, and in our connecting and engaging in the world, there are undoubtedly twists and turns in our journey. We will be taken beyond the safe and the comfortable life we might have imagined for ourselves. Being of service in our world is certainly most profound when a passion of our heart meets a need in our world!

As we reflect on Mary’s ‘Yes!’ to bringing forward new life, we are invited to reflect on what we are invited to say ‘Yes’ to in our life.
