Yes to the Will of God

Be honor and glory to Lord God, our loving Father, for this beautiful day. As we celebrate today the Solemnity of your Announcement to the Blessed Mother Mary of your plan of salvation to all, accept our humble praises and thanks to you. May we also imitate the Blessed Mother Mary, in her perfect “Yes,” as she cooperates and participates to your plan in saving humanity from sin and death. May all of us also say yes to your call today.

Thank you so much for calling us, Father. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Holy Mary, intercede for us with the Lord Jesus.

Fr. Edgar Benedi-an, OSM
