“Yes! Let it be!” – Advent, Christmas and Epiphany 2017
Mary’s prayer in Luke 1:38 is “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Mary had just heard an amazing plan – and from an angel, no less. The plan was for her to carry, and give birth to, the Son of God! Mary responded, “Let it be.”
Mary is often characterized as a meek and passive, obedient servant. A close look at the language Luke uses suggests a more active engagement with God’s plan. In the Greek original Mary is giving voice to an active commitment. Mary is expressing a strong desire to be part of God’s plan.
This Advent season we are invited, along with Mary, to make this our prayer to God: “Yes! Let it be!”
