The obedience of Mary has changed the history of the world. Regardless of the particulars of what happened, there is something incredibly beautiful about this woman who lived and died two thousand years ago. She had the courage, audacity and grace to live through the scorns and fears of daily life being pregnant without a man in life. She deserves our admiration and appreciation. I want to invite you to listen to this beautiful hymn as you reflect on your own courage to live life fully as Mary did.
