And she conceived by the Holy Spirit

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation, so remember to celebrate!

Annunciation by Federigo Barocci

Today is the beginning of our salvation,
And the revelation of the eternal mystery!
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
"Rejoice, O Full of Grace, the Lord is with you!"
(from a traditional eastern hymn)
