Today we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord.
Marianist Moment: Annunciation, written by Bro. David Betz:
“March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord, was designated as the Patronal Feast for the Marianist Family. We celebrated the moment when Mary said, “yes” to becoming the Mother of Jesus. She received the message from the angel Gabriel. She listened to what the angel had to say. She pondered on what it meant. She even questioned what it would mean for her. After being reassured by Gabriel, she said, “yes,” and the Spirit overshadowed her and she conceived Jesus into her womb. This is a time when we are asked to remember the time that were called by God and to listen, ponder and hopefully say “yes” to God’s will in our lives.”
