- Do you have a mentor or someone you go to in times of need? What makes that person so dependable?
- Mary was a witness to the life of Jesus. She was there and saw his life unfold. Whose lives have you witnessed? Who witnesses your life?
- Catholics often ask Mary to intercede for them with important matters. Have you ever prayed for someone in need of prayer? Catholics call this "intercession." Have you ever asked for Mary’s intercession?
ActivityMake a list of different mother figures you know who have had an impact on your life (your mother, grandmothers, aunts, teachers, etc.). What characteristics do these women have in common?
ReflectionThe Annunciation of Mary (March 25) often falls as a solemnity in the middle of Lent. Faithful mathematicians jokingly refer to the day as the most logical of all feast days. In other words, without the mystery of Mary saying “Yes” to God through the Archangel Gabriel, none of the mysteries would have followed. As any devotion to Mary points us to God, allow us to remember Him whenever it is we study math or any “secular” subject, for that matter.
