We remember Mary today because, in so doing, we remember our true vocation: to bear and carry and give birth to the One who is Bread, Word and Redeemer. It was MaryÕs vocation to bear God for the world. And every time you say “yes” to God, this becomes your vocation as well: to bear, carry and give birth to Bread, Word and Redeemer.
