Nine Months to Christmas!
As I type this up my husband and three of my daughters are on their way to church. Today is a feast day. It’s one of the 12 Great Feasts of the Liturgical Year.
Some might think that today is all about Mary because today we celebrate the Annunciation. The Annunciation is when the Archangel Gabriel tells Mary that she will bear a son and that He will save His people from their sins.
Yes, Mary was honored. Yes, she is blessed among women and she is a great example to all of us. She was humble and obedient.
But this day points to Someone greater. This day points to the One. This is the day that acknowledges that the second person of the Holy Trinity is God incarnate.
