About the episode
“Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”
These are the beautiful words from Luke 1:38, the Gospel passage which depicts the events of the Feast of the Annunciation. It can be so easy to let these words wash over us and just accept them at face value. But have you ever considered the fact that Mary, before the Angel Gabriel appeared before her, already had plans for an ordinary life with her husband to be, Joseph? But Mary, seeing that she had found favour in God, cast aside her plans and trusted that God had something greater for her. In short, she allowed for the salvation of the world to be born in her womb. On this episode, I take some time to break down this beautiful story and reflect on what it means to give our whole selves — our fiat — to God.
