Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

Angel and Mary

Thursday, March 25 we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. On this day, nine months before Christmas, the Angel Gabriel came to Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus. Today, we honor Immaculata's patroness, our Blessed Mother Mary.

We ask for her intercession as we pray:

O Mary, Blessed Mother of God, when the angel greeted you, you were surprised and fearful; yet, in wonder you listened and opened your heart to the divine message. Mother of Our Savior, help me to open my heart to the Father’s will in my life. Pray for me to the Lord God as I pray, O God, prepare my heart for it is hard for me to trust your ways. Give me clarity of vision that I may see your way. Open my ears, that I may hear your words. Place your hand on my shoulder, that I may feel your guidance. Enlighten the darkness of my soul that I may be filled with your life. Generous and loving God, like your daughter Mary, help me to know and do your will in this life and in the next. Grant me a grateful heart and help me to always pray as Mary prayed. Mary Mother of God, Pray for us! Amen.
