LK 1:26-38

In today’s gospel, the angel Gabriel comes to Mary and tells her that she is with child. Mary is confused by this because she has not been with a man. Mary willingly accept God’s will and says that she is the handmaid of the Lord. This teaches us to open ourselves up to what God has to say. We are told to be like Mary and do the will of God in our daily lives.
