The Annunciation of the Lord

Annunciation 25th March

 …  you are to conceive and bear a son … (Gospel of St. Luke 1:26-38)

“Mary, speak to us, because we do not know how to speak about you; speak to us, then, yourself. We sense that the mystery of the Annunciation is related to that of the cross. One reflects the other; one is rooted in the other. At the foot of the cross you experienced your Son’s death and the Father’s infinite love for humankind. Make us comprehend the mysterious roots of this love and penetrate into your ‘Yes’ to the will of the Father, from whom all originates, in whom all recurs and to whom all returns”.
