Mary's "Yes"

Mary’s “Yes”.

I dread to think of the mentality
Of those, Mother Mary, who
View your participation within
Our species salvation
As if it was nothing.

A process of thought which
Confirms that the source of evil
Which sought the death of
Jesus, your Son, still prevails
And still is active.

For without Your “Yes”
The salvation of our species
Would never have occurred
And what I now confess would
Never have been written.

So on the behalf of the human
Species I sincerely thank You
For Your participation
In the salvation
Of our race.

A participation which we desire
To share with each other through
Participation as Church members
Within the latter’s modern
Evangelisation process.

So, Hail! Mother of Our Redeemer
Who visits our species quite often
May we become the source of
Evangelising with You
And our Holy Spirit.
