A Blessed Aunnciation to All!

One of the things I love about the Liturgical year and about the liturgy itself, is the feasts in the midst of fasts, the reminder of sorrowful matters in the midst of joy, the already-but-not-yetedness of it all, the way the Church is all about Both/And.

When your days are ended and you must go to your ancestors, I will preserve your offspring after you, a son of your own, and make his sovereignty secure. It is he who shall build a house for me and I will make his throne firm for ever. I will be a father to him and he a son to me.
