We have been sought by God.

"How marvelous a condescension in God to come down from heaven in quest of us! And how great an honor to us so to be sought by God."
I love this quote from St. Bernard of Clairvaux for it is so true. God came to be with us; to be like us in all things except sin. To think that God sent His only Son to be one of us! Jesus came into the world a helpless baby. He could not talk or walk; he had to depend on others to take care of all his needs.
Sometimes it is difficult for the elderly to lose their independence. They need to be cared for and fed and often cannot express what they want to say. Jesus did not experience old age, but he knew what it was to be vulnerable and depend on others for everything.
Let us ask Mary to help us prepare our hearts to receive her Son.
