USCCB - (NAB) - December 20, 2007:
"And coming to her, he said,
“Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
But she was greatly troubled at what was said
and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
Then the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God."
Prayer for today: Calm our fears Lord! We want to do Your will, but there are so many things standing in the way...and one of them is not fully understanding what it all means. Illumine our hearts and understanding, Lord.
