Once again, during these Advent days, Lord God, we are blessed to hear a divine announcement to Mary. Her Son, to be born shortly, will be called holy—indeed, Son of God most high. Mary’s bewilderment is ours, too: how can it be that we deserve to have the divine Son of God come among us and teach us the lessons of holiness? We live in the midst of a great mystery, and we ask for faith that can help us truly understand. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
