Like a whisper
behind a wall of noise,
like a rose
hidden in a forgotten garden,
like a pearl
precious, unseen,
there you lived your life, Mary,
only briefly
letting us see
your smiling face,
hear your soft voice,
witness your faith,

and sewing
and scrubbing
and caring,
and loving,
and praying,
one long yes
to the call of the Father,
to the actions of the Son,
to the promptings of the Spirit.

O Mary,
pray for me
that in the daily
I may find God,
that in my weariness
I may say yes,
and in the end,
like you,
I will be willing
to give my God my all.

As I study the mysteries of the rosary, the two which really grabbed me were the marriage at Cana - "Do whatever he tells you." and the Annunciation - Gabrial waits for her consent.... the Supreme Being offers the most perfect gift of grace to Mary and then, waits for her to consent. Wow!!
