Mary in the advent of Christ

In this period of advent  the church calls us for Hope, Patience and  Joy because of the coming of our Savior. Yes it was God’s plan to send his Son, but it was also through the acceptance of Mary that this became possible. She didnt know much about all this… Lets us meditate  by watching this song and by listening to Bishop William McGrattan who gives us these powerful words: In a homily given by John Paul II on the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God he made the following statement: “Mary was the memory of the Church.” From the beginning she was fixed on the mystery of this newborn child, that she was attentive to this experience as the mystery of God’s salvation, and that her “fiat,” her yes, progressively unfolded in her life and that thus her memory played an important role in the faith of the Church.In the Advent season the Church’s memory becomes reflected through the memory of Mary. To identify with Mary in faith during this season of Advent is to be open to receive what she received. The first gift was that of a profound sense of gratitude for the warmth of God’s love given to her in Christ. His birth, his coming into this world was to reveal the fullness of God’s love and Mary was the first to believe in this love and to experience it in her life. We can read more of his refection here
