The Annunciation of the Lord - March 26

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

When March 25th falls on a Sunday, as it does this year, the Solemnity of the Annunciation is celebrated the following day, March 26th.   
"The Annunciation heralds the beginning of our salvation.  By Mary's obedient "Fiat," the earth has become heaven.  "In Jesus, God has placed, in the midst of barren, despairing mankind, a new beginning, which is not a product of human history but at gift from above." (Pope Benedict XVI)
