 Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.  It is a day holy mother Church invites us to meditate on Mary’s Fiat, on God’s goodness to us, and on Jesus Christ our Lord to name but a few. That is what came to mind this morning during meditation.  Where would we be without Mary’s fiat? Without God’s loving kindness in coming to us in human form? Do I echo Mary’s fiat in my own life? Let it be done to me according to thy word…

Let us pray that our holy Mother Mary will help us surrender our will to the Father’s will.

Collect :Solemnity of the Annunciation

Let us pray,
 God Our Father, Your Word became Man and was born of the Virgin Mary.
May we become more like Jesus Christ, whom we acknowledge as our Redeemer, God and man.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
