The Annunciation of Our Lord – Homily


Rev. Mason T. Beecroft, 03/25/2010

Today the Blessed Virgin Mary shows us true faith. The Angel Gabriel has just brought her the most unlikely message from God Himself. The young Mary is informed that she has found favor with God and so will give birth to the Messiah, the eternal Son of God. Of course this news shocks Mary. She is, after all, a virgin. She was young, but she was not stupid. She may have been a virgin, but she knew something about the birds and the bees. So how could she possibly give birth? The Angel Gabriel responds that she will conceive not in the normal manner, but by the power of the Holy Spirit. He concludes, “For nothing will be impossible with God.” Then Mary demonstrates true faith for us when she hears this most unlikely word from God: “Let it be to me according to your word.”
