Holy Father Pope Francis while addressing the faithful gathered for his Angelus conveyed about Mary’s response to God’s call in his reflection and he noted the contrast between “the promises of the Angel and Mary’s answer.” His Holiness explained that Angel’s greeting is a long revelation, which becomes even more detailed in response to Mary’s request for an explanation and highlighted that the contrast between the words of Angel and of Mary is significant.

As reported by Vatican Radio, Holy Father Pope Francis remarked that “It makes us understand that Mary is truly humble and doesn’t seek to show off. She recognizes that she is small in the presence of God and is content to be so. At the same time, she is aware that the realization of God’s project depends upon her response, and so she is called to adhere to it with her whole being.”

His Holiness Pope Francis concluded his remarks by exhorting the faithful to ask Mother Mary to help each of us to welcome the project of God in our life with sincere humility and courageous generosity.
