12-08-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 8, 2017
(The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”  Lk_1:26-38

Total submission!  Even in the light of possible persecution and execution, Mary submitted to the will of God!

Jesus commissioned us to, “Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations.”  What is our response, beloved?  Is it, “May it be done to me according to your word?”  Or is it, “Yeah, but . . .!”

Yes, there may be some cost to carrying out God’s will.  But are we willing to submit even a little?  Are we willing to submit it ALL, as Mary did, as Jesus did?

Today we celebrate the immaculate conception of Mary.  It’s not Mary’s conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit.  It’s Mary being conceived in Spirit without the stain of original sin.  The link above goes into much more detail.  And out of her perfection is perfection born.  Praise God for His love and Mary’s fiat!
