It is the story of Mary's Annunciation when the angel appeared to her and revealed to her that she would conceive and bear a Son.

Advent Reflection: Matthew 11:28-30 THE DOME BLOG - December 10, 2014 Second Week of Advent –Matthew 11:28-30 This Gospel is one of my favorite Scripture passages.

Mary and Evangelization VIVIFICAT! - December 10, 2014 ... which Christ entrusted to his Church when He said to his disciples: "Go throughout the whole world and preach the Gospel to all people" (MK 16, 15).

A Simple Reflection on Mary's Fiat HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - December 8, 2014 Image Source: Wikimedia Commons ) [I am recycling this simple reflection which got lost amid an earlier and lengthier post.] In today's Gospel (Luke 1:26-38) we hear the angel Gabriel's familiar greeting to our heavenly Mother Mary: "Hail full of grace".

By: Larry T In ancient times when kings toured their kingdoms messengers were usually sent ahead to herald the king's coming to his subjects. Local communities, that wanted to stay in the good grace of the king, rushed to repair any rough roads so as to help ensure the king's travel comfort.
