March 25 – Celebration of Mary’s Annunciation

March 25th – Celebration of Mary’s Annunciation

The angel Gabriel came to Mary with unanticipated and life-changing news.  “Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.”

Mary’s “Yes” brought the light of God into world – for all and through all time.

It was a “Yes” that also changed a dark world as Mary became Bearer of Light, Mother of Jesus, and Mother of the World.

Mary’s “yes” continues to spark Faith, Hope and Love across the centuries and is calling us to deeper Faith, courageous Hope and selfless Love in new and profound ways this March 25, 2020.

May our expressions of Faith, Hope and Love support and bear Light beyond our limited world right now and through the long months ahead.
