SOLEMNITY OF THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD

       This special feast is the first in the cycle of the life of Jesus and the particular attribute is submitting totally to the Will of God as evidenced by the Blessed Mother's reply, her fiat: "Thy will be done" (Luke 1:26-38). The feast commemorates both the Archangel Gabriel's announcement to the Mary that she would be the Mother of God if she would accept and the Incarnation of the Son of God. Celebrated as the first Joyful Mystery, this feast was firmly established in the Liturgical Calendar as early as the the fifth century with its date being determined in light of the nine month pregnancy period by the date of Christmas on December 25. In the revised Liturgy, this feast of the Blessed Virgin is considered a solemnity feast.
