(Luke 1)

When the angel Gabriel delivered God’s request to Mary of Nazareth, she asked, “How can this be?”

Reflection:
Such a stunning event—yet our faith gives us the ease, like little children, to believe in wonders beyond our comprehension.

Prayer:
Lord God, like Mary, you sometimes make requests of us that are beyond our comprehension and like Mary, we too ask, “How can this be?” And you always show us the way.
