Happy Feast of the Annunciation!

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation, where Our Lord came down from heaven and took on our form in everything but sin. Deo Gratias!

Notice that today is March 25th – exactly nine months before Christmas. Holy Mother Church, in Her holy wisdom, has always considered this the time to celebrate the conception of Our Lord. Just as we know that December 25th really was the birthdate of Christ, we also know that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit nine months prior.

I hope as many of you as possible can attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass today in commemoration of this feast.

Tomorrow we continue pennance and head into Holy Week soon. Be sure to abstain from meat again this Friday and try to pray the Stations of the Cross in remembrance of Our Lord’s Passion.
