Mary, the mother of our Lord, was the strongest woman that ever lived. Of course she said yes, Gabriel gave her great news... she was going to be the vessel of the Lord!!! It may be true that she was told an amazing and glorious fact, but with this revelation came an abundance of issues. What would her brothers and sisters say? What would the community think? What would Joseph think?!? She was 16 when God told her that she was the one who would bear the son of the world.
What would you have said? Do you say yes to God's plan?
