Feast Days with Bishop Skip – The Annunciation

I guess it is my own humanity which wants to believe that Mary’s troubled pondering lasted more than the seconds it takes to read of it.  Discernment of God’s call on one’s life, especially when it is transformative and involves a complete redirection, takes time in prayer that comes out of a deep grounding and preparation.  It reminds me of other’s acts of obedience in the biblical witness such as of Abraham and Sarah.  In modern times we might think of Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, or Archbishop Oscar Romero.
