Yes … or no?

For centuries, artists have celebrated the fact that Mary said yes to God.   Take, for example, this great image by Botticelli, showing her during this big moment of decision.  I think we can all agree that her “yes” has totally transformed the world.

But what if she had said no?

That’s the subject of this week’s Question  Box question on BustedHalo: “Would we have a Savior if  Mary had not consented to God’s proposal?”   You can read my take on it here.

And be sure to say “yes” to the free Mary and Me giveaway!   It closes on September 8, so enter soon!
