With God nothing will be impossible

1 Timothy 2:5-6: For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men - the testimony given in its proper time.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, we praise you for making access to you so freely available. we know that if left to our own power, we would have no strength or righteousness with which to approach you. Yet in your grace, you not only provided a ransom for our sin, but you also provided a mediator for our approach to you. Jesus, we thank you as well, for paying the price and staying at the Father's side to intercede and speak for us! Thank you, Jesus, for making this prayer known to the Father as we pray in your name. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 1:26-38.)
We see the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prediction and the telling of God's plan of salvation in the events leading up to the manifestation, the birth of the Messiah. The new era of salvation begins with the beginning of Jesus in the womb of Mary. This child to be born is conceived by the cordial action of the Holy Spirit upon Mary, who finds good turn with God. How does Mary react to the word of God delivered by the angel Gabriel? She knows she is inquiry something beyond human ability. It will surely take a wonder which surpasses all that God has done before. Her question, “how shall this be, since I have no husband” is not prompted by uncertainty or skepticism, but by amazement! She is a true hearer of the Word and she right away responds with faith and trust. Mary's punctual response of "yes" to the divine message is a model of faith for all believers. Mary believed God's promises even when they seemed not possible. She was full of grace because she trusted that what God said was correct and would be fulfilled. She was willing and keen to do God's will, even if it seemed hard or costly. Mary is the “mother of God” because God becomes in the flesh when he takes on flesh in her womb. “For us men and for our deliverance he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit, he became in the flesh of the Virgin Mary, and was made man”. God gives us grace and he waits for us to respond with the same readiness, compliance, and heart? Felt trust as Mary did. When God commands he also gives the help, power, and means to respond. We can either yield to his grace or oppose and go our own way. Do you believe in God's promises and do you yield to his stylishness? As Eve was the mother of all human race fated to sin, now Mary becomes the mother of the new Adam who will father a new humankind by his grace. This child to be conceived in her womb is the completion of all God’s promises. He will be “great” and “Son of the Most High” and “King”, and his name shall be called “Jesus”, which means “the Lord saves.” “He will save his people from their sins”. The promise of an eternal kingdom to the dwelling of David is satisfied in the King to be born in Mary’s womb.
