Today, March 25, is the Feast of the Annunciation, the day the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would give birth to the Son of God. This feast interrupts the Lenten season even as Gabriel interrupted Mary’s life with news that would forever change her life and the world. On this day the liturgical color changes from Lenten purple to festal white, fasting gives way to feasting, and alleluias again echo throughout the church.

Pour your grace into our hearts, O Lord, that we who have
known the incarnation of your Son Jesus Christ, announced
by an angel to the Virgin Mary, may by his cross and passion
be brought to the glory of his resurrection; who lives and
reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now
and for ever. Amen.
