PODCAST | The Most Revolutionary “Yes”

[ Podcast Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio reflects on the scene of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and how her yes to God’s will is the model of vocational response for all generations.

Mary’s fiat – let it be – has a very personal effect on our lives. Fr. Peter explains that everything we have in our Catholic faith – all the sacraments, the Eucharist – is traced back to a specific episode; it all originates in a teenage young lady. When Mary gave her answer to Gabriel, the world was forever changed. It was the most revolutionary yes. 

As we contemplate Mary’s yes which brought Christ into the world, we come to realize that we are each called to bring God into the world and to share the presence of Christ with those we encounter in everyday life.
