DG BookGospel: Luke 1:26-38
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God, to a town of Galilee called Nazareth.
He was sent to a virgin, who was betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the family of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
The angel came to her and said, “Rejoice, full of grace, the Lord is with you!” Mary was troubled at these words,

wondering what this greeting could mean. But the angel said, “Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you.
You shall conceive and bear a son; and you shall call him Jesus. He will be great, and shall rightly be called Son of the Most High.
The Lord God will give him the kingdom of David, his ancestor; he will rule over the people of Jacob forever; and his reign shall have no end.”
Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” And the angel said to her,
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the holy child to be born of you
shall be called Son of God. Even your relative, Elizabeth, is expec­ting a son in her old age, although she was unable to have a child;
and she is now in her sixth month. With God nothing is impossible.” Then Mary said, “I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me as you have said.”
And the angel left her.

REFLECTION:
The Feast of the Annunciation tells us that any pure religion requires a living and cons­tant dialogue between God and every person.
In this Feast, God pronounced, through the angel, his last Word to Mary so that the words that were spoken in the history of Israel would be fulfilled.
In the Annunciation, we have the kind of dialogue that the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ would like to have with each one of us.
The course of history and the fulfilment of God’s plan always involve human coope­ration.
The experience of Mary underlines this truth for all people of God. With Mary’s “yes” in response to God’s invitation,
the dramatic change of the life of God’s people followed.
Every day, God himself announces his good news to us in the events of our life.
And God wants a “yes” from us to do his will: to help a friend, forgive someone, or comfort the sorro­wing.
In these instances, may we always respond with the words of Mary, “Behold, I am the ser­vant of the Lord, let it be done to me as you have said”.
