Excerpt from Prepare the Way of the Lord Album by our Mother Foundress

“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to Your Word. (Lk 1:38)

Mary gave Herself totally to the Lord. She gave everything that She was, everything that She had, everything that She really is. And She received a hundredfold. She received the fullness of Life, the fullness of Light, and the fullness of Love. She received the fullness of the Trinity. She said that God had made Her the most blessed of all and that Her spirit rejoiced in God, Her Savior (cf. Lk 1:46-47). Joy is always the infallible sign of the presence of God. Satan can imitate almost everything else. He can do so much imitation but he cannot imitate joy because joy is God Himself. It is the presence of God Himself.

Can you image what it will be like when the Church really goes into the desert again, really becomes contemplative again and really starts receiving the enfleshment of the Word, experiencing the joy? Can you imagine the evangelization that will go forth? People are drawn to happy people. Joy is contagious. You cannot camouflage joy, can you?

We want to be people of joy. We want to be Pentecost people. At Pentecost, Our Lady was with the disciples so that they could have the same experience in that upper room which She had at the Annunciation. Out of the climate of silence, authentic prayer really begins. Here is where revelation and contemplation comes. As we are fed, we become quieter, more silent. We start to gaze. The more we gaze, the more we become like the One at whom we are gazing – Jesus!

“And (behold) I am sending the Promise of My Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with Power from on High. (Lk 24:49)
