Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

In today’s first reading (Genesis 3:9-15, 20), Eve makes a choice: she and Adam choose to violate God’s law and thus all humanity becomes afflicted by sin.

In the eternity of His will, God makes a choice: he chooses Mary to be the mother of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who preserves her from sin.

In today’s Gospel (Luke 1:26-38), Mary makes a choice: she chooses to accept God’s will and be His instrument in the Incarnation of the Son of God, who will die and rise so that all may be freed from sin.

What will our choices be today?
