Feast of the Annunciation
Feast of the Annunciation today!
This is our true Spring day, when the Winter dark and cold of selfishness and sin yields to the green shoot of Mary’s total yes to God. The whole cosmos pauses and stills to listen for the answer to the Angel as God makes Himself dependent on a young girl’s faith. All graces come to us through Mary’s consent including the Author of Grace who today allows the loving attentive stillness of a woman to change our destiny forever.
A girl becomes the Theotokos: the Mother of God; and in and through Mary we become His brothers and sisters!
