Mary was chosen to bear Jesus because she kept her purity intact. Simple people call this her “virginity”, but those who know understand that to be pure means to be completely adaptable, to flow with each moment, to be like a running stream cascading from the waters of life itself. To be pure is to spread joy, and joy is the unfoldment of the knowledge of the perfection of God. The “work” that you have been searching for is the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of God is the Christ which comes to redeem the world. The eternal messenger is always within, waiting to unfold the moment through the Word, and one day when Mary is recognized again, there will be a reappearance of the Christ, manifested in the outer world. Remember who Mary is, and one day, when you are ready and when God so wills it, you will know what I have told you.
