“Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” Luke 1:45

Do I feel the blessings of faith?

Oftentimes when the waiting is tough or things are not working out the way we hope, we are told to simply “keep the faith.” In essence, this just means we need to believe, no matter what happens. Both Mary and Elizabeth, important figures for Advent, are great examples. Each of them dwelled in that precarious place between mystery amd reality. To remain steadfast with uncertainty and without worry ultimately turn into miracles, both large and small.
