PODCAST | The Most Revolutionary “Yes”
Today on the podcast…
Fr. Peter Armenio, priest of Opus Dei, reflects on the scene of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and how her “yes” to God’s will is for all generations the model of vocational response.
Mary’s fiat -“let it be”- has a very personal effect on our lives. “Everything we have in our Catholic faith, all the Sacraments, the Eucharist,” explains Fr. Peter, “is traced back to a specific episode. It all originates in a teenage young lady. When Mary gave her answer to Gabriel…the world never remained the same. It was the most revolutionary yes.”
This reflection will help us contemplate Mary’s “yes”, which brought Christ into the world, as a blueprint of the Christian vocation. Like Mary, we are each called “to bring God into the world… to make Jesus Christ more present… and to make His presence be felt in the people that we know.”
