Today we celebrate the Annunciation when the Angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she would bear Jesus. This day also marks the conception of Jesus, nine months before Christmas.
Prayer of the Day
Pour your grace into our hearts, O God, that we who have known the incarnation of your Son, Jesus Christ, announced by an angel, may by his cross and passion be brought to the glory of his resurrection; for he lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
