Father Broom speaks in his Mass homily on Mary – Our Model.
Mary said “Yes” to God’s request delivered by the Archangel Gabriel.
She said “Yes” – “Be it done unto me according to your word”
Her “Yes” meant that the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity became truly present in her body – body, blood, soul and divinity. God was truly present in her.
When we say our “Yes” in Holy Communion… when the priest says “Body of Christ” and we say “Amen” – the body blood soul and divinity of Jesus Christ is born in us. Mary is our Model. Let’s say “Yes” with the same purity,devotion, prayerfulness and fervor that Mary did.
