Our Lady of Expectation
“Let it be it done to me according to Thy word” (Luke 1:38 )
St Bernadine calls these words “A flame of transforming love”.
Mother St. Paul said of these words:
“It was a transformation for the world. This word of Mary’s, by which she gave her consent to God’s plan of Redemption, changed the face of the whole world. It began a new era A.D. instead of B.C. It settled the moment of the arrival of the ” fullness of time ” (Gal. 4.:4) – of God’s time. As a result of it, God was already tabernacling among men. The leaven of the Gospel, which was to leaven the whole world, was already beginning to work. Mary s word produced a transformation in the world, and though it “knew Him not,” it was never the same world again.” Mother St. Paul, Mater Christi, 1918
Let us ponder the power and grace that flooded the world when Christ was conceived in Mary’s womb. At the one cell stage, Christ fundamentally changed the world.
Christ wanted to show humanity how special that one cell stage is by fundamentally changing the world at that beginning point of His Incarnate life.
He raised that moment in each person’s life to a dignity and beauty that we will never fully comprehend.
The Culture of Death, like darkness, tries to encroach upon this light, this new illuminated life to extinguish it.
Let us pray that our world will say the same transforming words for each newly conceived child that Mary said for Jesus.
“Let is be done to (us) according to Thy word.” (Luke 1:38 )
