The story of the Annunciation (Fourth Sunday of Advent Year B, Luke 1:39-44) reminds us that nothing is impossible for God. This is a good fact for men discerning their vocation to remember and reflect on.
God can perform wonderful miracles and make impossible things happen. We need to be open to this possibility and respond in the affirmative by saying ‘Yes’ as Mary and Elizabeth did.
God in this instance needed the full participation of Mary and Elizabeth to create these miracles. We need to be ready, open and willing to participate fully in what God wants of us, so we may discover God’s special plan for each of us.
Kind regards and God bless
