Feast of The Annunciation

March 25, 2019
The feast of the Annunciation marks the visit of the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary, during which he told her that she would be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

It is celebrated on Monday 25th March this year. The feast has been celebrated since the 5th century AD. The festival celebrates two things: God’s action in entering the human world as Jesus in order to save humanity.

Secondly, humanity’s willing acceptance of God’s action in Mary’s freely given acceptance of the task of being the Mother of God.
