Mary was stunned by the angel Gabriel greeting her as the “favoured one”.
Yet, she understood the duty that was bestowed upon her.
We have all been chosen to be favoured by Him.
In what we say and do, on a daily basis. No matter if we are right or wrong, we are still favoured by Him.
So what does He favour us with? His gift of love.
O Key of David, O royal Power of Israel controlling at your will the gate of heaven: Come, break down the prison walls of death for those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and lead your captive people into freedom.
