Et incarnatus est

Today we celebrate the Annunciation, where Mary's yes to God as communicated to the Archangel Gabriel was the turning point in human history. 

The Annunciation is where it all began. 

The incarnation is so great a mystery that we fall to our knees at the word in the creed at Mass and yet a lifetime of contemplating its mysteries would never suffice. 

Our Faith is not just spiritual but also physical. In His becoming human in Our Lady's womb, Our Lord opens up salvation for all who believe and follow Him. 

As Mary accepted Christ in her womb, may we accept Him in our hearts, our souls - and bodies too - as we invite Him in both spiritual and actual Communion. 

Every day is a chance to recommit to Christ, but what better opportunity than today?
