Mary's gift

Mary's "yes" made possible her greatest happiness: the true presence of the holiness of God Himself for the salvation of the world. Mary gives Jesus Christ to us and to all. She knows the happiness of holiness, the absence of Eve's shame, through the presence of Jesus Christ within her for the sake of others.

To give oneself is good; to give Christ is best. Holiness is living Christ and giving Christ, but we cannot give what we do not have.

We discover this "happiness of holiness" when we are, like Mary, bearers of the gift of Christ within us for the sake of others.

Regular and intense prayer keeps Christ alive in us for others.
