Mary teaches us how to follow Jesus like she does. She teaches us to be open to God and to His will. God's will is shown to us in the events of our daily lives just like they were shown to Mary in her life. Mary teaches us to listen to the Word of God in the scriptures and in our life. We are to believe in God's Word and put into practice all that it demands of us. Like Mary, we are to pray at all times and in doing so will discover God's presence in all that is happening around us. Mary teaches us to be involved with others, to be close to them and attentive to their needs and giving aide however and whenever we are able.
