Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.--Psalm 40:(8 and 9)
Mass readings: Isaiah 7:10-14; 8:10 / Hebrews 10:4-10 / Luke 1:26-38
The feast of the Annunciation appears to have been the subject of some discussion over the years regarding its date. It's clear that the feast was celebrated in Spain by the seventh century, and widely throughout the Church by the eighth. Originally a feast in honor of the conception of Jesus, it was honored as a Marian festival for more than 1,000 years until restored to its original intent in 1969.
Jesus' whole life was one of obedience to God's will, whatever that demanded. When He was conceived in His mother's womb, He began the long journey toward Calvary. By His willingness to give himself totally to what the Father wanted, He saved me from my disobedience.
Prayer: Lord, by Your obedience to Your Father, teach me obedience.
