Listen to Paul attempting to articulate the unfathomable mystery
of God’s love for us: “Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every
spiritual blessing in the heavens, as he chose us in him, before
the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before
And how over-whelming for us. Before the foundation of the world God chose us and gave us every spiritual blessing — and chose us to be God’s own dwelling place and the Body of Christ on earth. Ourselves, so ordinary, unworthy and flawed!
How can we respond adequately to God’s choice of us?
From generation to generation we have looked to Mary as our model: “May it be done to me according to your word – Fiat!”
Mary — model, mother, advocate — help us with our Fiat! On your feast we beg for your intercession that your son may be born anew in us this Advent!
