READING I: Isaiah 7:10-14
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 24:1-2, 3-4ab, 5-6
GOSPEL: Luke 1:26-38
A little image for you; Gabriel is sent to Mary, Mary listens and all of heaven holds their breath as the Father awaits Mary's answer. Can you imagine the hush in heaven as all awaited Our Lady's reply? She had free will; she could have said "No." What would a modern feminist do if she was asked to live a life such as Mary? I wonder would we have been saved at all?
