Feast Of The Annunciation 2021
This feast celebrates the moment when salvation began with the acceptance by the Blessed Virgin Mary of her role as Mother of God and Co-Redemptrix of the human race. God became Man today and the Incarnation is the chief teaching of the Catholic Church about Jesus Christ. This also marks the anniversary of Our Lord’s ordination as a priest. All this elevates the Immaculate Virgin to the threshold of divinity by her proximity to the hypostatic union which took place in her womb. This can be considered her greatest feast. It was a privilege for some of us to have visited the Holy House of Loretto because this is the place where it started. We should not be rude in prayer by letting ourselves be distracted from speaking with God.
