Shame on me March 25, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in General Catholic.

I am sorry, everyone.  I should have touted the fact that today is the Feast of the Annunciation!  This is the moment when Christ came into existence in Mary’s womb 2012 years ago?  Why 2012, not 2010?  Because the best research indicates Christ was actually born slightly before AD 1.  While today is not a Holy Day of Obligation (we want our Holy Days back!!!!), it is a Solemnity, the highest feast in the Church, and if you can make it to Mass, do so!  Say a prayer for Mary’s intercession and meditate on the mystery of the Annunication. 

O God, who desired Your Word to take flesh from the womb of the blessed Virgin Mary
the angel announcing it:
grant to your supplicants;
that we who believe truly in the Mother of God,
may be helped in Your sight by her intercessions.
