UNBORN WORD of the day

I begin every new day which is like a new creation

“…The Angel Gabriel brought the message of a new creation. Gabriel may have well remembered the message that was given to the created angels. He would recall that the creation of man was not followed by his acceptance of God’s message to him. Created angels rebelled; Created Adam rebelled. Now the message of the greatest creation, the creation of God-Man with the cooperation of Mary was announced.

…He gave to angels and to men a heart free to love. Without that freedom there is no true love. Alas, abusing the God-given freedom, the angels cried, “We will not serve,” and man cried, “I will not obey”. What then is Gabriel’s joy on the morn of this new creation when Mary answers with full love, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord.”

God’s greatest creation, the Incarnation of Jesus, is consummated by the consent of Mary. With gratitude to both (Mary and Jesus) I begin every new day which is like a new creation, and I welcome Mary’s Son who comes to dwell with me today.”

Francis P. Donnelly, S.J. The Heart of the Angelus and of The Hail Mary, 1947
