The meaning of Mary’s “fiat”

I have been a faithful reader of Restoration, the monthly newsletter of Madonna House in Combermere, ON, for years.  I always read it from cover to cover.  One of my favorite columnists is Fr. Pat McNulty.  He’s one of the “salt of the earth.”  I thought I would share with you one of his Advent columns from past years.  His topic was the meaning of the word fiat, spoken by Mary in response to the angel at her Annunciation.  You can read it here.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

  1. What a fabulous article! I needed that right now. I pray that I will have faith like Mary’s. That I will always say to God, “Let it be done. No questions asked. That’s the end of it!”
