New Year's Inspiration
Throughout the Advent and Christmas seasons, we have heard how Mary said “yes” to God’s calling to give birth to Jesus. She replied to the angel, “May it be done to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). Mary’s “yes” brought our faith to fruition. Today, as we begin 2015, we also celebrate the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.
