Our scripture lesson recounts Mary's angelic encounter and her faithful and humble response. Mary is called to do far more than bear a child but to raise one. Mary is called to love the one who is love, the one who will one day reveal God's love to the world. Though we are not called to raise the Christ child, we are called to love those around us as if they were the Christ himself. We too are called to love.
