And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be.
And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father: and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end.
And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man?
And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: Because no word shall be impossible with God.
And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Moran re-enacting the Annunciation with our CGS Materials
A close up of the materials.
Moran really enjoyed this little presentation and played with the materials for quite a while.
Our little ones spent yesterday painting and colouring some Annunciation pictures.
This was one of the best online ones, or from Marian Devotions in the Domestic Church along with the visit to Elizabeth.
Corbyn painting some peg figures
Myffwyn busy painting her "Jesus"
Moran painted a lot of the peg dolls and spent ages here, re-doing each one.
We had rissoles and 'Potato Bake' our white dish for the purity of Mary.
This was all we managed as we are hard at work cleaning and had a long time out visiting the doctor and running errands.
