Annunciation of the Lord

Cestello Annunciation detail SBotticelli.jpgAs Christ came into the World, he said: Behold! I have come to do your will O God.

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.
