ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD
Date:
25th March 2017
Description:
On the floor of the Holy House in Nazareth, an inscription reads 'Verbum cara hic factum est'; 'the Word was made flesh here'. When the Blessed Virgin said 'yes' to the Angel Gabriel, the Word became flesh and dwelt in her womb for nine months. The Annunciation is the prologue to the mysteries of Holy Week: the Incarnation happened so that we could be redeemed; the child conceived on this day was born to die for our sins and conquer death.
