Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation, our school Feast Day! May we all find the humility and grace of Mary to say “yes” to the Lord in our lives.
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” … (Luke 1:38)
“Loving trust and total surrender made Our Lady say ‘yes’ to the message of the angel. And cheerfulness made her run in haste to serve her cousin Elizabeth. That is so much our life: say ‘yes’ to Jesus and running in haste to serve him in the poorest of the poor. Let us keep very close to Our Lady and she will make that same spirit grow in each of us.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta
