MOMENTS TO TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY
 
By God's grace she was freed and empowered, from the first moment of her existence, to be utterly open to love.
 
Many of us have read obituaries that people had written for themselves before they died.  Sometimes terrible disease took their lives at a young age. In these short stories of lives we hear words of gratitude for a full meaningful life, satisfying work, long, loving relationships and friendships. I’m sure they suffered great pain during their lifetime, and them, like us, had had some very difficult or challenging days. But in the end, bitterness had no place in their final act of self-expression. They declared that relationships were ultimately the most important thing, and they encouraged those of us reading their last message to “go out and create moments to take your breath away.”
 
The Immaculate Conception is an attempt to say the same thing about Mary. Her life was held together and carried forward by her complete assent to the task she was given. By God’s grace she was freed and empowered, from the first moment of her existence, to be utterly open to love. Mary said: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to Your word.”
 
Today in the Responsorial Psalm we acclaim: Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous deeds. Like Mary who trusted and believed in the ultimate love of God through the Angel’s message, may we live a grace-filled life by believing in God’s promises and by giving Him our unqualified “yes” to God’s will and plan for our lives.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: I like the lyrics to the song, The Breath You Take: by George Strait. Life’s not the breath you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day, ain’t what its all about. You just might miss the point, trying to win the race. Life’s not the breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. “Go out and create moments to take your breath away.”
