SOLEM­NITY OF THE IM­MAC­U­LATE CON­CEP­TION Ps 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4

1st Read­ing: Gen 3:9-15, 20

Was Mary afraid? The an­swer is yes like any­one who hears a dif­fer­ent call and a new dis­rup­tive plan in one‘s life. Her ini­tial fear gave way to trust in God‘s ini­tia­tive of be­ing a part­ner of a new hu­man­ity. Mary mod­els to us a faith that is rooted in trust and con­fi­dence in a new covenant with God. The ques­tion is whether like her, we move with faith or are par­a­lyzed by fear. When fear lives in us, as op­posed to be­ing a mo­men­tary re­ac­tion to some­thing new, we are par­a­lyzed by it and end up do­ing noth­ing.
