The thoughts of Bishop Emeritus Tamás József
Monday, 20 December
Jesus said the most perfect "yes" to God, and the Virgin Mary’s is the second most perfect “yes”. Although she does not fully understand the content of God's message and asks questions, she is able to submit to God's plan and will with these words. And that is the basis of her sainthood and greatness. Our life also depends on how we respond day after day to God. For it is possible to say 'no', as the fallen angels did, who uttered: We do not serve! It is possible to refuse as the first couple did in the Garden of Eden when they ate of the fruit of the forbidden tree. We should always say “yes” to God, as Our Lady did.
