Celebrating Mary's Yes - The Annunciation
On the 25th March we celebrate the feast of the Annunciation which is that moment in time when Mary, a young Jewish woman, opened herself to the Word of God. Through this gesture of welcome the human community was able to see, hear, and touch, Emmanuel, God among us.
Each day we too are offered the same invitation - to allow God to continue to become incarnate in our body, in our life. This enables God to continue God’s mission of love in our world. Today, we are the body of Christ, and through us the work Jesus began continues throughout the ages. As we celebrate the feast of the Annunciation let us keep this in mind.
Speak Lord I am listening,
Let your Word be done unto me,
May it find a home in me.
