The Annunciation

img654Luke 1: 26-38

The Angel Gabriel was sent from GOD to a virgin whose name was Mary.  The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with GOD.  Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.” Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the LORD.  May it be done to me according to Your word.”

Reflection

Mary, upon hearing the Angel, accepted the honor of divine maternity.  With her words, “Behold the handmaid of the LORD,” she became the mother of GOD.  All of us, as brothers and sisters redeemed in Christ, are her sons and daughters.  She is the mother of GOD and our mother.

Praise the LORD.
