Quote of the Day
The context of the new evangelisation is one that requires of us a deep, personal experience of God…………..So the first point that we learn from Mary in this context is the need to put God in the first place in our lives and do the good God wants.

From the Annunciation to Pentecost Mary's life was one constant "yes" to God, always and in so many varied circumstances.

She had no official status no office, no powers, no ministerial authority other than the essential authority of a life immersed in God.
