Likewise, when God disrupts our lives - through the voice of conscience, the normal responsibilities and demands of our state of life, or the indications of Church teachings - our 'yes' can echo Mary's and make more room for Christ in this fallen world. But our 'no' - even our 'maybe' - can easily shut him out."
