Mary takes center stage these last few days before the birth of Jesus. That's the way it is when a woman is expecting a baby at any moment. After that, well, it's all about the baby!
The mother of the child is the hope and the promise of what's to come.
Mary said yes to all that God had planned for her. What is God's plan for you? And are you saying yes to it?
"What has God called you to do? What is your mission by which your life is fundamentally defined? Be like the Mother of God and move!" - Fr. Robert Barron
