It was recently an eye opener when someone at one of our meetings explained handmaid. Being a handmaid was the lowliest of all servants as they washed the hands of the master. Mary, lowered herself to be just that and guess what …. Satan’s pride and arrogance has been crushed by the lowliness of the Virgin teenager. Today, we’ve been invited to renew our commitment to Christ in baptism to follow Mary, the handmaid of the Lord, so that we may be like her.
