Today’s highly interesting read (03/26/2023): 4 Lessons Our Culture Can Learn From Jesus’ Mom

On this Sunday today’s read is from Thomas Griffin who teaches in the Religion Department at a Catholic high school and lives on Long Island with his wife and son. Here’s an excerpt:

March 25 marks the date that the Catholic Church and many other Christians commemorate the Annunciation of Mary. This is when we recognize the momentous moment Mary accepted the invitation from the angel Gabriel to become the mother of God. Through the “yes” of a teenage girl in the backwaters of Galilee 2,000 years ago, God became one of us and saved us from ourselves.

As we look around at our broken world, even the non-religious can see that things are not as they should be. God used Mary to begin rebuilding his kingdom here on earth, and so we can confidently look to her example in how we can begin repairing the brokenness permeating our culture today.

Here’s the entire column.
