An angel appeared to Mary and asked if she would be the Mother of God. Mary said to the angel, “I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done unto me according to thy will.” She was saying yes to God. God kept Mary free from sin. She is the only person other than Jesus who is Perfect. Mary is sometimes called the new Eve. Eve disobeyed God and had to leave the Garden of Eden. But Mary always listened. Because she said yes to God, Jesus was born on Christmas day.
