The Annunciation…


The Feast of the Annunciation on March 25th celebrates the meeting between the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary, as recorded in St. Luke’s Gospel, the day when St. Gabriel announced to her that she would conceive a Child by the Holy Spirit. It is the moment of Mary’s great fiat of perfect submission to the will of God, and the day the Church celebrates the Incarnation of Jesus Christ in the womb of His Blessed Mother, exactly nine months before the Feast of the Nativity on December 25th. (Due to the Annunciation falling on Good Friday this year, the Annunciation celebration was moved to after the Octave of Easter).
