Yesterday was the Memorial of the Conception of Mary. Mary is our model and advocate. She teaches us to overcome all obstacles by placing our trust in God. When the angel Gabriel told her that she would be the mother of the son of God, Mary questioned this, but then she said “yes” to God. May we also believe and say yes to God’s promises, however impossible they may seem. Listen to Danielle Rose‘s song honoring Mary’s “yes” here.
