Why is it that Mary needed to be sinless? Because this made her the fitting mother for the Son of God. And just as she fully cooperated with the grace God gave her, so too can we cooperate with the grace God gives us.
Each morning at Christian Brothers College High School, we begin with a prayer. This is the first of prayers I created about my good friends, the saints. Today we again feature the Blessed Mother. Did you know the Lasallian rosary has six decades?
Can you imagine how overwhelmed the Blessed Mother was when the angel appeared to her? Or the amazement of Elizabeth when she became pregnant? This weekend a Christian Brother, a martyr, was beatified. Could he have ever imagined he would grow up to give his life for his faith in Jesus? What of you? God can do magnificent things with you. Let Him.
