On this fourth Sunday of Advent, Fr. Healy starts by reminiscing about his own mother as well as Mary the Mother of God. Indeed, we are reminded how courageous and powerful Mary really is in God’s plan, despite how we have fashioned her as a calm, quiet woman. We are challenged to allow Mary to be the one to challenge us to really invite Jesus into our lives.
