Virgin Mary’s simple faith brought her blessings and glad tidings. Because of her obedience and trust in God, He chose her to participate in the world’s salvation. Obedience needs humility. As humility is a virtue, it needs practice and a change of heart. But with no humility and change of heart we cannot obey God. With no obedience we cannot be in communion with Him. Choosing not to commune with God, means to cut oneself from the source of life. No life, no glad tidings, i.e. dead. Let’s ask God to give us to believe, change our hearts and trust in Him as she did.
