Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

“Sometimes we ask the question, ‘How can this be?’ Or we make the statement, ‘I don’t understand You.’ Sometimes the Lord is really clear in His answer and sometimes the answer is very cryptic, or very muddled, or we just don’t hear it very well. Or the answer is simply silence. But in those times, in those places, what we can be is we can be imitators of Mary. And we can imitate that confidence and that faith. We can imitate that saying, ‘Behold, I am the handmaid, or the servant, of the Lord. May it be done unto me according to Your Word.'”
