Pope Francis marked the Feast of the Annunciation on Monday by reflecting on the power of Mary's "yes" to God.
"Mary's 'yes' opens the door to Jesus' 'yes': I have come to do Your will, this is the 'yes' that Jesus carries with him throughout his life, until the cross," he said in his April 4 homily.
The Pope celebrated Mass at the Casa Santa Martha residence Monday morning, Vatican Radio reports.
Through Mary's affirmation, God "becomes one of us and takes on our flesh," he said.
