The Beautiful Power Of A Simple "Yes"
Each one of us who says "yes" to God when the Holy Spirit overshadows us becomes like Mary, another Mary, a dwelling place for Jesus. Our mission now is to bring forth Jesus to the world. My call, your call, is like Mary's call ... to embrace and welcome the action of the Holy Spirit, to offer him no resistance, so that Jesus Christ may be born in us and manifested to the world! To know that my "yes" to God has impacted other lives in some way is humbling, because I know how insignificant I am. Yes, "God who is mighty has done great things for me and holy is his name" (Lk. 1:49).
I close with these beautiful words of St. Paul: "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him, God has revealed to us through the Spirit" (1 Cor. 2:9-10).
