Prayer of the Day

Third Week of Advent – Feast of St. Fachanan, Bishop

December 20th, 2014
"“You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen as you have said.”" Luke 1 : 38

The angel Gabriel visits Mary to tell her she is to become the mother of God. She too is told that the child is to be called Jesus. In contrast to Zechariah she believes and accepts the angel’s words but she still she tells no one.    

Prayer Mary had God as the centre of her life. Lord, show me how to imitate Mary, your mother. Fill my heart with attention to your will. Let it be for me the centre of stillness and strength. Amen
