What if Mary had possessed a pair of magical glasses
that allowed her to see the future ---
every detail of the life that followed saying yes
when the angel announced that she was the chosen vessel?
Knowing her fledgling family would have to flee to Egypt,
that her first-born would be set apart from others
and possessed of an other-worldliness and preturnatural gifts,
that he would ultimately be hung by the Romans
alongside common thieves. . . .
would her answer have been different?
Can we escape our destiny?
If we choose to deviate from the path that appears to be ours,
is the final destination the one at which we were meant to arrive?
