Let us learn from the Virgin Mary how to be
bolder in obeying the word of God.
~Pope Francis, 12/8/14 Tweet
O God of our fathers,
who with the angel's message
willed that your word should become man
in the virgin womb of Mary,
let your people, who worship her
as the true Mother of God
in docile acceptance of your Word
the strength to bear witness of it to all peoples.
Through Christ our Lord.
~St. John Paul II
