4th Sunday of Lent

Laetare Sunday

“While I am in the world, I am the Light of the World

This Wednesday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation—when the Angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would be the Mother of Jesus, the Son of God.

This is a very important Solemnity for us as Christians, for it is the day when “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).  Jesus didn’t become man when he was born at Christmas, rather, he became man nine months before that when he was conceived in the womb of Mary, his Mother.  (This is why the Annunciation is on March 25th…exactly nine months before Christmas!)

This week we have two very beautiful images simply titled The Annunciation.

The first is by Auguste Pichon and was painted in 1859.And the second is by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo and was painted between 1655-60.











You are in my daily prayers.

God bless you,

Fr. VanDenBroeke
