    Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be done with me according to your word.(Luke 1:38) Mary’s fiat, as it is called (fiat being not a cute little car but Latin for “let it be done”).

    Though Catholicism didn't take with any Beatle, Catholic culture and Marian images permeate a number of Beatles songs. There is no lovelier hymn to Mary in modern English than "Let It Be," the Beatles song written in 1969:
    When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, Speaking words of wisdom:
    Let it be.

    Sounds like a good one. Have always enjoyed her books. I know her from my days @ldsbc. She is a wonderful woman. Very spiritual.
