Feast of the Annunciation
Monday 26 March.
~ The Feast of the Annunciation in Passiontide. ~
Since yesterday the images are veiled,
an atmosphere of shrouded sorrow tinges the feast.
Since Adam's fall, the world, purpled in mournng
awaited the coming of salvation.
The Blessed Virgin Mary,
the only Lily of our vale,
is by a singular privilege raised up by God
to receive into Her spotless womb on this feast,
through Whom all things were made,
the Saviour of the World - Salvator Mundi.
for Mass on our neighbouring island.
Nature reflected the season and the feast.
it was present in the sky all veiled, restrained,
brilliant through a cover of haze.
