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
