Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


Meister Eckhart wrote, “When St. Paul had done a lot of talking to the Lord, and the Lord had reason much with him, that produced nothing, until he surrendered his will, and said: ‘Lord, what do you want me to do?’  Then the Lord showed him clearly what he ought to do.  So too, when the angel appeared to our Lady, nothing either she or he had to say would ever have made her the Mother of God, but as soon as she gave up her own will, at that moment she became a true mother of the everlasting Word and she conceived God immediately, who became her son by nature.  Nor can anything make a true human being except giving up one’s will.”
