The Feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord

25th March – Today is the feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord also known in the Society of Christian Doctrine as the feast of the Madonna of the Verbum Dei.(The Word became flesh)

During the second world war many asked Saint George Preca for a prayer to recite during those difficult times of war.  He always recommended they recite the phrase “Verbum Dei Caro Factum Est” and put it in a prominent place in their homes.

Let us also today during these difficult circumstances recite these words in our homes to give us the courage we need.  These words taken from the Gospel of St John mean that ‘the Word of God became flesh’.  Jesus is always with us in our sorrow…He will not abandon us.  Let us have faith in Him and have courage!
