Imitating the Mother of God

What do Advent, Christmas, and the Holy Family all have in common? Mary, Mother of God. She gives us the standard and practice for holiness. We admire the standard, but do we stop to think about putting this into practice?

Being ready

We have this opportunity of Advent to empty ourselves, to be fully ordered towards Him. To be aware, ready to fully embrace Him, and enjoy a profoundly-changed life that only Jesus can give.
