Advent Mary A Reflection by Robert P. Maloney, C.M.
Humility There is an Advent spirit in the heart of every person. It is one of longing, of yearning for a fulfillment that somehow lies beyond ourselves.
Advent celebrates human yearning. Mary epitomizes its meaning. She knows her incompleteness. She longs for the coming of the Lord.
Vincent saw humility not just as an interior virtue that would help us toward personal perfection; he described it as a missionary virtue that is utterly necessary in the service of the poor.
Two Advent reflections on humility:
1. Humility is the ground for great confidence.
The humble recognize their own gifts and their own limitations.
Do we have the capacity of the humble to hope against hope as we view the oppressed in the world?
Do we believe that the power of God, working in us, can cause walls to fall down, as did those of Jericho?
Are we humble enough to believe that he who is mighty can do great things?
2. Humility is the ground of enormous freedom.
The humble enjoy great liberty, great mobility.
The humble put their store not in the esteem of others nor in the importance of their position but in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Can we, like the poor in spirit, move freely where the Lord calls us?
Remember Mary and Joseph: “Mary set out, proceeding in haste into the hill country.” (Lk1:39) “Joseph got up and took the child and his mother and left that night for Egypt.”(Mt 2:14)
