    The Holy Mother is at the heart of the Church. She is both our mother and a fellow pilgrim on the journey. First and foremost she gave her heart to the Lord as she said yes to God’s will for her life. She didn’t fully understand of course but she trusted. When Mary hears the invitation from the angel Gabriel to be the mother of the divine Son, she asks the question, “How can this be?”” Her question is not one of doubt. It is more one of logistics, for she is a virgin. The evangelist Luke makes a definite contrast between Zechariah who is also visited by Gabriel and is told that his wife Elizabeth is with child. He is an old man and she too is past child birth, so he doubts. He is struck dumb.
