Pro Life Corner – Christmas 2014 – Have we prepared the way of the Lord? Are we willing to follow the way of Mary to say yes to God’s will in our lives? Are we willing to allow Him into our homes? Mary said ‘yes’ to God physically living within her. Mary was a holy and sacred temple of God in the truest sense. So are we. God wants to live in our hearts and our souls and our homes. He really wants to live in us. He really wants to make an effect in our life just like he made an incredible effect in Mary’s Life and in Joseph’s life. He really wants to give you His peace. He really wants to give you His mercy. He really wants to give you His love. What should be our response to that? To follow Mary’s example, and say I am a handmaid of the Lord. Let it be done to me according to your Word.
