Some good Catholic Numbers: Monday, April 4th, 2016

Listen to this homily here.

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord
·      As this is a huge solemnity—the annunciation of the Lord
·      When Gabriel spoke to Mother Mary
·      And Jesus was conceived in his Mother’s womb
A few numbers this morning on Monday!
·      This is Monday, April 4th
·      When do we usually have the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord?
o   March 25th
o   Why?  9 months to Christmas!
·      Our calendar can be cramped in
o   Christmas right into Easter
o   6 months of just ordinary time
o   Or here…go forward to resurrection and we have a solemnity backwards—Mother Mary in her womb
·      365…366 days this year
·      We don’t have enough DAYS do walk through Jesus’ life
o   Or our saints through centuries
o   Our family found ways to keep praying forward, backward, earth, heavenly
It’s a cool Church
