Feast of the Immaculate Conception

To watch Fr. Joe’s homily from The Feast of the Immaculate Conception: CLICK HERE!

Mary is meant to be a model to us of cooperation with the will, the plan, of God.

But when we think of Mary, it is easy to think that she was chosen before the she was born to be the Mother of God.  How could she say anything but yes to God and God’s plan for her to be the Mother of the Savior?

Today’s feast might well get us thinking what is GOD asking of me… of us?

How am I being called to bring Christ into the world, to be a Christ bearer, a Christian, in the world of today?  Especially, when I think or feel that I am not able, or worthy, or just do not want to…

But as St. Luke reminds us today, “Nothing is impossible for God.”

When in our lives are we being asked to cooperate with the plan of God, even if we think the ask is too much or just impossible.

Like helping a neighbor or a stranger.

Like being more visible as a person of faith through the life we live daily.

Nothing is impossible with God.  God has already blessed us.  What do you think is IMPOSSIBLE for you to do, that God is asking of you?

Maybe NOW is the time to say YES to GOD and to begin to act, to be the better person of God, we are all called to be for today and tomorrow…

Mary is the model to us of doing God’s will.  May we be models as persons, families & Parish to our children and others every day as we faithfully live our “yes” to God and his Will.
