Annunciation of the Lord

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that "The Annunciation to Mary inaugurates 'the fullness of time,' the time of the fulfillment of God's promises and preparations. Mary was invited to conceive him in whom the 'whole fullness of deity' would dwell 'bodily.' The divine response to her question, 'How can this be, since I know not man?' was given by the power of the Spirit: 'The Holy Spirit will come upon you.'" (484)

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.

Getting to the bottom of the story, or at least approaching the bottom, is welcomed news as to the validity of the alleged apparitions at Medjugorje by the Blessed Mother. Remember these apparitions have been going on since 1982! Are these apparitions or hallucinations? The answer may come if the reports that a Vatican commission has been established are true. An Italian media group is reporting that the Vatican is setting up a commission to be headed by Cardinal Camillo Ruini.

CNA speaks about some recent issues pertaining to the hallucinations, I mean, alleged apparitions. I am of the opinion that these events at Medjugorje are not true but I am willing to say that the Holy Spirit can bring good out of bad.
