Wow! What a beautiful feast day. Can you imagine Mary(in Jewish tradition she was only 14 or 15 years old) visited by the angel Gabriel and told of God’s plan for salvation? What an amazing thing-and her response- her fiat… The liturgy was so beautiful this morning. We sang the Gloria and the Sanctus. What a special day to meditate on God’s goodness to us- He sent us His son to dwell among us! Every day we pray the Angelus(at 6am, noon, & 6pm) and we have the opportunity to reflect on this beautiful truth of our faith. Let our Blessed Mother’s fiat also be our own…
Let it be done to me according to thy word.
