Today, in Mercy, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. It is a sacred and beloved feast. Have we not come to love its phrases, ringing in our hearts like treasured memories? Let us pray with them today, asking to welcome the astonishing Will of God in our own life as Mary did.
The angel Gabriel was sent from God
to a town of Galilee called Nazareth…
And the angel said:
“Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus, for nothing is impossible for God.
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”
Music: Ave Maria – Franz Schubert
