Bishop DiMarzio Releases New Video Statement: “God Only Wills What Is Good For Us.”
The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn today released the following video reflection on the Feast of the Annunciation, commemorating the day in which the Archangel Gabriel told Mary that she was to be the Mother of God.
In speaking to the faithful, Bishop DiMarzio speaks of Mary’s acceptance of God’s will for her and explains how we must understand God’s will for us. Bishop DiMarzio importantly reminds us at this time of terrible disease, for which there is no known cure, this is not God’s will for us. “God only wills what is good for us,” said Bishop DiMarzio.
Bishop DiMarzio concludes this video reflection stating, “We seek Mary’s intercession on this Feast Day, when she began the work of the redemption. We ask her to continue it for the lives of all who are stricken by the coronavirus.”
