Solemnity of the Annunciation of Our Lord

Nine months from today,
“Do not be afraid.”

God in humility,
Mary in humility,
Our response will shame us
If not one of humility.

Nine months from today,
“Do not be afraid.”

Our Salvation awaits our response.
Mary’s “Fiat” covered her whole life,
“Fiat” to conception.
“Fiat” to flight and pilgrimage.
“Fiat” to dying to self,
“Fiat” to accepting even the Death of her Son,
Then the sword that pierced her heart as it pierced His.

Nine months from today,
In pristine flesh,
Nestled at the breast
Of one who in humility feared naught
For love of God.
