Behold the handmaid of the Lord


Today we celebrate the day that God became Man - Jesus was true God and true Man, and in assuming a true humanity He started, as we do, in that most powerless and vulnerable position - hidden in the womb, known only to His Blessed Mother. He was entirely dependent on her for life - thank God that in exercising her "right to choose", she chose to say yes to God:

"Be it done unto me according to Thy Word."
