This is part of a series of daily devotionals for May, the month of Mary.
During the Annunciation, the meaning of the Christian vocation is revealed. The response of Mary to the Angel Gabriel shows us how to live our lives, by saying “Yes” to our Lord and by believing that nothing is impossible with God. “Mary’s Prayer teaches us to stay afloat in the ocean of life, with all of its undertows. Mary’s way is to become an ark within, where the same God who became incarnate within her takes up His residence in us.”
