Tradcatknight: Sermons For Feast of the Annunciation
"And the angel Gabriel was sent by God into a city of Galilee called Nazareth, and the name of the virgin was Mary."--Luke 1.
Athwart the somber season of Lent, the deepening shadows of which grow darker still until the bright dawn of the resurrection morn dispels their gloom, there flashes the glory of a divine fact which gives to this festival of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary a rank equal to that of the greatest feast of the Church. This divine fact may well inspire our hearts with the most tender, the most exquisite, the most joyful, affections of thanksgiving, for to its existence we are indebted for the inestimable grace of Redemption.
