Mary's night prayer
You have probably heard the Catholic rosary prayer: “Hail, Mary, full of grace.” but what if Mary's response to this angelic proclamation was more along the lines of :
"What? Why me? Things were going along so well for the first time in my life. And now, O Great Disturber, this. This! What am I to make of it, This call?"
14th century Christian mystic says these words:
“We are all meant to be mothers of God. What good is it to me if this eternal birth of the divine Son takes place unceasingly but does not take place within myself? And, what good is it to me if Mary is full of grace if I am not also full of grace? What good is it to me for the Creator to give birth to his Son if I do not also give birth to him in my time and my culture? Then, then, is the fullness of time: When the Son of God is begotten in us.”
Take time today to reflect on how you give birth to God?
How is God begotten in you?
