The Holy Gospel According to Luke 1: 26 - 38

26 In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee  named Nazareth,
27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
28 And he came to her and said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!"
29 But she was greatly troubled at the saying and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be.
30 And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,
33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom, there will be no end."
34 And Mary said to the angel, "How shall this be since I have no husband?"
35 And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.
36 And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing will be impossible."
38 And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.

Reflexion:
"Dear Mary, when the angel gave you a message that God wanted you to conceive Jesus, the savior, you said yes to Him without questioning your well-being. You were engaged to Joseph, you knew you could be stoned to death, you knew people would not like you, but you trusted God fully because you knew He knew better and had your best interest at heart no matter what happened. Even if you would suffer. Pray for me, too, that I may be humble like you and accept God's Will in my life, no matter what that is. Also, pray for me that I may have the discernment to know His Will, and to live as a reflection of His commandments, especially the greatest of all that Jesus left us, Love God above, and my neighbor as I love myself!” 

Pray a Rosary today and ask for Mary's intercession, Our Lord Jesus Christ never denies any of her petitions, as long as it is according to the will of God.

Our Lady of Lourdes when She appeared to St. Bernadette asked to add an extra decade when you pray the rosary for the souls of purgatory.


God bless you!
