4th Sunday of Advent, Year B
Published on December 18, 2020.
Although Mary was chosen at her conception to be the mother of Jesus, she still had to say yes to the Lord. God would not force her if she refused to cooperate with his grace. Lucifer, (Satan), was the Angel of light but he rebelled against God. Our fore parents, (Adam and Eve), were created in the state of grace and yet they disobeyed God. Jesus, the Son of God, had to overcome varied temptations during his ministry. Thus, Mary underwent many trials, but she remained steadfast to God’s plan for her.
