Ecce Ancilla Domini

Ecce ancilla Domini

Behold the handmaid of the Lord

This has been echoing in my mind all day.

Haley over at Carrots for Michaelmas has an excellent post for today: Why Mary Has to Hold the Cards: Thoughts on the Annunciation, Assault, and Free Will.  The title startled me at first, but reading it made my day's meditation all the more clear.  You should read it too.

Ecce ancilla Domini

Have a blessed Annunciation! 

P.S. Next year Good Friday and the Annunciation fall on the same day.  Beautiful.  I cannot wait!
