“God will never ask you to do more than Mary did.” And what did Mary do? She said “yes”. Today, on the eve of the celebration of Mary’s Immaculate Conception, Fr. Mike wants us to meditate on how we can learn to say “yes” to God from the ultimate example of what a “yes” looks like: Mary, our mother.
