Two irregularities about the Feast of the Annunciation

Monday, April 9, 2018

The first irregularity is that while this feast is usually celebrated on March 25th, this year Holy Week and Easter Week push it back to April 9th.

The second irregularity is that whereas we often see the role of Mary in the Annunciation, this year we return to the role of the infant coming into her womb. We see this in the quotation in the Letter to the Hebrews where the infant says "Sacrifices and holocausts thou will not, behold I come to do your will."
