Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.    St. Luke 1:38 (in part)

Mary heard the angel’s prophecy – a greater calling than she felt capable of fulfilling, a prophecy that seemed impossible.  She confirmed it with acceptance as the handmaiden of the Lord.  She did not question what others might say about her: she replied, “So let it be”.  Will you, My child, accept whatever call comes to you in this spirit of humility and obedience?  And be blessed?
