May it be done to me according to your word

“‘Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her.” (LK 1: 38)

Yesterday, Zachariah doubted the message from Gabriel because of his condition; today, Our Lady believed beyond her condition. It looks like it is not about conditions, it is about our faith, our relationship with God. The more we believe, the more we trust, the more we are united, the more miracles we can expect. It is like our coca and water example—not based on condition, but in our inner world.

“O Key of David, opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom: come and free the prisoners of darkness!” (Gospel Acclamation)
