Birth Announcement Of Jesus By The Angel Gabriel


Extract

The Angel Gabriel said to Mary, “Greetings, favoured one, the Lord is with you. Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. You will bear a son, and you will name him Jesus”. (Luke 1:28, 30-31)

ThoughtsThought

St Peter Canisius once said that, while there were many roads leading to Jesus Christ, for him the veneration of the Blessed Virgin was the best.

Persistence, perseverance and working together is always more productive!

ReflectionsReflection

Mary, Mother of Jesus, keep us in your care, guide us safely through life’s snares and accompany us to the Kingdom of heaven.

Prayer: Psalm 130

Out of the depths, I cry to you, O Lord,
Lord, hear my voice.
O let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleading.
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,
Lord, who would survive?
But with you is found forgiveness;
for this we revere you.
My soul is waiting for the Lord,
I count on his word.
My soul is longing for the Lord,
I count on his word.
My soul is longing for the Lord,
more than watchmen for daybreak.
Because with the Lord, there is mercy
and fullness of redemption,
Israel indeed he will redeem from all its iniquity.
