Feast of the Annunciation, the day human history changed for ever

25 Mar 2020, 9:15 a.m.

Today, 25 March, we celebrate with joy the day when the Angel Gabriel was sent to Nazareth to give Mary the news that she had been chosen to bring to birth the Saviour of the world.     Just imagine if she had said, 'No, not me thanks'!  Although she was perplexed and apprehensive, she gave her 'Yes' to God's plan, and everything changed.    At this time of Coronavirus crisis, we are all perplexed and apprehensive, so now is the time to ask Blessed Mary our Mother,  to pray and intercede for us.   

We beseech thee, O Lord, pour thy grace into our hearts, that as we have known the Incarnation of thy Son, Jesus Christ, by the message of an angel, so by his + Cross and Passion, we may be brought unto the glories of his Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.  Amen.
