The Annunciation of the Lord

Monday, April 4, 2016

A mother is presented with an unexpected gift, and without thought of self immediately sets about to share it with the world. Gabriel has proclaimed that Mary not only is pregnant, but also that she will give birth to the Savior of the world. Talk about unexpected gifts! This Solemnity, remembered during the Advent liturgy and usually celebrated on March 25, is celebrated today, Monday, April 4 because of Good Friday falling on that date this year. We have a tendency to sometimes take this story matter-of-factly, but perhaps at the beginning of this Easter season, we might take a few moments to quietly reflect on Mary and how she immediately knew and freely accepted her role in being part of God's greatest gift.
