Louis Maximilian from our friary in New Bedford, Mass. gives a homily for the opening mass for his retreat on the words of Pope Benedict XVI on Mary, "The Woman of the Yes". Father covers the fact that the pope was a famous theologian prior to his election, having played a central role in the Second Vatican Council. When Pope Benedict speaks of Mary he focuses on the fact that her entire life is one big "Yes!", saying "yes" to her Lord and to the plan of salvation and the role she is to play in this which God has decreed for her before time began.
