The passage in St. Luke's Gospel announcing the Birth of Jesus is well known -- and every time we pray the Hail Mary we recall this wondrous event.
Mary's response is one that we all need to make regarding God's will -- Fiat! Yes, be it done unto to me! Mary's fiat made her the mother of God. What will our fiat mean?
It may be that our fiat will see us becoming vowed religious. Or it might make us a dedicated single or married and open to the gift of children that God may have in store for your future. Regardless of the outcome, the only thing important is being open to God's will -- and following where He leads.
May we have the grace to answer as Mary, "Fiat! Be it done unto me according to Thy will!"
