O clavis David
Gospel – Luke 1:26-38
The conflict is always between what we want to do and what God asks from us. The question of Mary, ‘But how can this come about, since I am a virgin?’, shows this. In the answer of angel Gabriel, she, Mother Mary understood the mystery of God’s will. It is about giving the lead of the life to God. It is about abandoning oneself to the Word of God. It’s not anymore, a conflict between what we want to do and what God wants from us. It’s about bowing to the work of the Holy Spirit, and it is to be in the shadow of the power of Most High. It’s about understanding that the possibilities of God begin where the possibilities of man finish. Here conflicts are transformed into conformities. Conformities to the will of God. What God asks from us becomes what we want to do. Advent is a time to make same what God asks from us and what we want to do.
