The same Holy Spirit who came upon a young peasant girl in Nazareth announcing to her that she would be Mother of God is the same Spirit who comes to us.
Mary's response to the intervention of the Holy Spirit in her life was profound ..." God who is mighty has done great things for me." She didn't say "see what great things I do!" Do I believe that no matter what is done to me, no matter how helpless and hopeless I feel, the Spirit can always make good things happen, even when I cannot... and especially when I cannot? Can I say "God who is mighty has done great things for me?"
