Sixth Week of Easter, Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

The feast of the Annunciation of the Lord celebrates the angel Gabriel's appearance to the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:26-38), his announcement that the Blessed Virgin had been chosen to be the Mother of Our Lord, and Mary's fiat—her willing acceptance of God's holy plan.
