God rarely makes booming announcements about what you should do with your life. Quite the opposite, it takes a lot of quiet to hear God inside you.

FEAST OF JOACHIM AND ANNE, PARENTS OF MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUSMary’s good upbringing is apparent
Mary is so important in the life of Jesus and in our own lives that we naturally are curious to know who her parents were and what they were like. Trouble is, there is no mention of Mary’s parents in the New Testament. In the second century, however, a document known as the Gospel of James describes Anne and Joachim as an older couple whose longing for a child was fulfilled in the birth of their daughter, Mary. What we do know is that Mary’s parents raised a faithful daughter who was filled with courage and grace. Mary said yes to the unknown. She trusted God’s word. Have you said yes to the sacred unknown in your own life?Today's readings:
Jeremiah 14:17-22; Matthew 13:36-43 (402).
“Through God’s covenant . . . their family endures.”
