Speaking with Mary

What a joy to open my email this morning and find this from friend Carol:


 

How could anyone see this baby’s body-language and not know that grace was at work, and a very real dialogue was taking place.  Anna Maria shows us clearly that Mary’s call for our own fiat requires only the trust, the openness, the wonder of a child – that our Mother is truly with us, waiting to instruct us, to offer us her guidance, and engage in heart-to-heart talks.
