20 December - Season of Advent

If Zechariah is an example of doubt, even when a message is given by an angel, in today's Gospel, we see an example of trust and total dependence on God. Mary did ask the angel Gabriel: "But how can this come about, since I am a virgin?" The difference here is that Mary accepted and believed in the angel's message by responding: "I am the handmaid of the Lord, let what you have said be done to me."

Supposing we received a message from an angel, would we unreservedly and willingly accept and act on the message? Or would we allow doubt to take over?
