On the Feast of the Annunciation

The Angelus
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour ofour death. Amen.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

Hail Mary . . .

And the Word was made Flesh:
And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary . . .

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.

The boys (Our three, Kevin, Jon, and Dominic, and friend, Tim)

singing The Magnificat in Omaha, March of last year.

Wish I could get to Omaha to do some recording this season, but it doesn't look like that'll be possible. The big boys and Michelle all have their hearts set on singing at their Alma Mater during Holy Week and on Easter, and then will stay for the final vows of a dear Sister we know. Kevin will be driving out to Omaha with Michelle before Holy Week begins. The rest of us will stay in Denver to celebrate the season with the extended family at our own parish. Maybe I'll send my camera along with Kevin, though.... Hmmm... that's a thought.

The boys singing The Magnificat is absolutely beautiful. I wish I could figure out how to have that play over and over on my computer.

Many blessings to you and yours!
Happy Feast of The Annunciation! How do you celebrate as a family?
