The Annunciation- And Meat on Friday?

The Annunciation

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation.
It's a solemnity, which means we don't fast nor obstain from meat today even though it's a Friday of Lent. (See the code of cannon law 1251 if you can't believe it.)

But more importantly, it's nine months until Christmas. You know what that means? Today is the day we celebrate the day that the Angel Gabriel came to Mary and said, "Hail, full of grace. The Lord is with thee." He told her she'd concieve a son and she says her yes, "May it be done unto me according to your word."

And so the Word was Made Flesh!!! :)

Awesome!  In the fullest sense of the word.

Pray the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary today. (And have a burger.)
