On this Solemnity of the Annunciation, we celebrate with the joy the good news which Gabriel brought to Mary: that she was to be the Blessed Mother of God’s only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Through Mary’s “Yes” to God’s divine plan of love, the Savior was conceived in her womb by the Holy Spirit, thus bringing about the Incarnation of Christ. May we rejoice with all creation and imitate the humble obedience of our Blessed Mother!
