Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
March 25, 2021 – Thursday
Gospel: Luke 1:26-38
“ Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to your Word.”
On this feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, we give honor to the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Mother of God. The Word became flesh through Mary. And for this reason, in the Verbum Dei, we also celebrate today as our feast. For as Mary gives her yes, the incarnation of the Son of God began.
May you who are nourished through the Verbum Dei charism also find a moment today to celebrate this gift that we can help each other and many others know God through his Words. United with Mary’s yes, we give thanks to God for all the ways his words have given us life and love. And in a special way we pray for the consecrated people renewing their yes, their vows to the Holy Trinity in this day.
Mother Mary, we give you thanks.
