Annunciation

The angel Gabriel… came to her and said “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” But she was much perplexed by his words and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.  

Luke 1:26, 28, 29

In today’s episode with pray with Mary, and the angel Gabriel’s incredible announcement to her. We observe her response and her willing participation in this story despite her fear and her lack of understanding.

Every blessing as you pray with this, my friends!

    Available – this echoes my heart’s response. Very apt to stop and reflect on Mary’s unlikely and humble situation and her heart’s response to the perplexing call.

    Lissy, my dear,
    This has been a beautiful way to start my Advent season. I am sending these along to Lectio friends, many of whom are in the midst of personal challenges and, in some cases, fresh grief. Mary is the one who understands on the deepest level all that we go though in this life. Thank you for giving us time with her!
    XOXO Linny
