Saint of the Day Quote: Blessed Virgin Mary

[26] And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, [27] To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. [28] And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. [29] Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. [30] And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.

[31] Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. [32] He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. [33] And of his kingdom there shall be no end. [34] And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? [35] And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

  1. Mary-land Day. Fr. Andrew White celebrated Mass on St. Clement Island in the Potomac on March 25, 1634 thus establishing Catholicism permanently in Maryland.

  2. The beginning of Satan’s demise.

    I love the fact the God so chooses to completely humiliate Satan by the humility of a young Jewish girl who said Yes to God.

    Satan is and will always be a chump.

  3. “Hail, full of Grace! The Lord is with you.”. No one else in Scripture is addressed this way.. God’s own words faithfully delivered by His servant, the Archangel Gabriel.

    Fr. Larry Richards refers to the Annunciation as the single greatest event in history since the creation of the Universe.

    Fr. Pablo Straub refers to the phrase “full of Grace” as a complete abscence of sin. Mary makes a mockery of Satan and all his followers, the Woman who crushes the serpent with her heel.

    It is a good thing to have this most joyous solemnity within Lent..the Christ promised to Israel is with us, as foretold by the prophet Isiaih.

    And what does Mary do after hearing this greatest of news? No, she does not exalt herself, but travels to be with Elizabeth, six months pregnant with St. John the Baptist.

    I wish a blessed Lady Day to all at TAC.

  4. The Feast of the Annunciation celebrates Mary’s fiat, Mary’s “YES” to become the Mother of God, Mary’s “YES” to bring God into the human race, Mary’s “YES” to have the Feast of the Incarnation celebrated before all ages for all time.
