Marian Blueberry ParFIAT

"Ecce ancilla Domini; fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum." ~ Luke 1:38

Marian blueberry parFIATHere is a simple and inexpensive treat in honor of Our Blessed Mother’s Fiat (YES) and the (traditional) feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  This treat can be served for breakfast, snack or dessert.  In fact, my kids would have it for dinner if dad and I let them.  We’ll see what they ask for, after all, it’s “YES” day in our home on the feast of the Annunciation.

Mary uttered this fiat in faith. In faith she entrusted herself to God without reserve and "devoted herself totally as the handmaid of the Lord to the person and work of her Son." And as the Fathers of the Church teach-she conceived this Son in her mind before she conceived him in her womb: precisely in faith! ~ Pope Ioannes Paulus II, Redemptoris Mater
