Happy Annunciation!

The Annunciation - Paolo de Matteis

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation–the day that Jesus was conceived in Mary’s womb.  We of course celebrate His birth 9 months later at Christmas, but we often forget the incredible importance of Mary’s “yes” to God that took place at the Annunciation.

“Mary’s human cooperation led to our divine salvation and the opening of the gates of heaven.”  –Homesteaddad.com

I found this short article that made me take a moment and think a little more deeply about her “yes” and the many opportunities I have to say yes to God throughout my days.  Check it out at homesteaddad.com.
