First meditation on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
"Ave Maria, gratia plena" (incipit of the Gregorian antiphon).
Something happens in the normalcy of a day like so many others. It is not something flashy or spectacular: it is a presence that enters with great discretion and deep respect.
But his greeting to the Virgin Mary (01:29
) brings an unthinkable, inconceivable message:
"The angel said to her: Do not be afraid, Mary, because you have found grace with God. Here you will conceive a son, you will give birth to him and you will call him Jesus. He will be great and called the Son of the Most High."
"Then Mary said to the angel: How is it possible? I don't know man." (04:45
) The angel replied: The Holy Spirit will descend on you, the power of the Most High will cast his shadow over you. The one who will be born will therefore be holy and called the Son of God .... Nothing is impossible for God. ".
"Then Mary said: Here I am, I am the handmaid of the Lord, let what you said happen to me. And the angel left her." (07:30
My very personal meditation on the episode narrated in the Gospel of Luke.
