In today’s “Season’s Greeting” (Luke 1:26-38), the angel Gabriel delivers shocking to news to Miriam of Nazareth. We know her best as Mary, the mother of the Lord. Back then, she was just another teenage bride-to-be from a backwater village in Israel. All that changed when she said “Let It Be” to God’s costly plan. More than a religious icon, Mary is a model example of courageous faith for all who hear the word of God and obey it.
