Can you think of a time in your life when your heart was pierced by something so beautiful that it just took your breath away? Can you think of a time in your life when you encountered something so beautiful that it made your heart ache because of it?
These moments are very, very important in our lives. They’re God moments. Moments when heaven is breaking through to reach our hearts. It is so important that we allow our hearts to be pierced by beauty. In fact, Pope Benedict says that a saint is precisely someone who allows his or her heart to be pierced by the beauty of God to such an extend that the beauty of God enters into that person and transforms that person.
And this is what happened in Mary, not only in her heart but literally in her womb.
Mary’s “Yes” forever changed human history. And her “fiat” to become the Mother of God continues to teach us how to surrender… how to serve… how to love.
