At the annunciation, St. Gabriel the Archangel told Mary that she would be the Mother of God.  Mary gave her “fiat” (be it done), and conceived the Savior by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Through her consent to God’s plan, she took an active role in the redemptive work of her Son, Jesus.  We invoke her as the Mother of Christ and our Mother.
