Today we read in the Gospel a message given to a young woman, a message which is likewise meant for us. God’s messenger assured the young Mary “Do not be afraid… for nothing will be impossible for God.” God assures each of us, as He assured the young woman who was to become the Mother of our Savior, and He offers the same assurance to every married couple that nothing is impossible for those who trust in Him and entrust themselves to Him. The assurance He offered to the “yes” spoken which changed the history of mankind is no less than that which He offers to each and every couple who likewise promise “yes” before Him on their wedding day. Just as the Lord was forever with the young Virgin from Nazareth, He is with us in our marriage.
If we commit our married lives to Him, He is with us and we cannot fail. Today as we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe let us recall the words of Our Mother to Saint Juan Diego, “Let not your heart be disturbed.” So too, let us put our trust in God and beseech the help of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Make a great day!
