Feast of the
Hail Mary, full of Grace … For the December 8 Feast of the Immaculate Conception we celebrate the fact that Mary was equipped by God to oppose evil and to choose good. Like Mary we are to incarnate the love of God; we too are called to be holy, to do good and to celebrate the story of redemption. Mary accepted God’s ‘interruption’ in her life. Like Mary may we accept with gratitude and joy God’s invitation to bring his beloved Son into our Bethlehems and Nazareths.
We pray: Creating God, fill us with every grace and blessing. We rejoice in you, naming Mary as ‘blessed among women.’ May we possess the faith and trust of your daughter Mary to say yes to your ‘interruptions’ in our lives, when you call us to make your presence real in our own time and place. May your will be done in us. Amen.
