“She had to learn to trust…”
How often do we think of Mary’s trust in the Lord? How often do we imagine what it must have been like for her as she accepted the Lord’s invitation to become the mother of our Savior, as she watched him grow from child to man, and witnessed the power of his adult ministry ending in his death and resurrection? What must have trust been like for her? And how can we live as she did? The Rosary can guide us to this same trust of what Mary herself learned: that when we place everything we have in the hands of the Lord, he will guide us.
