Don’t forget that this is the 376th anniversary of the first Holy Mass in the English-speaking colonies.
It was offered on St. Clement’s Island in the Potomac River by Fr. White!
…Annunciation Day and Holy Week are always in the spring.
In the spring, many things that have lain hidden finally come into view. The goodness of the earth reveals itself.
In the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the instant when He was conceived and became man, the Word of God declared to the Father: “Behold, I come to do Your will!”
For many years, this perfect obedience lay hidden within the soul of Christ.
Then, during Holy Week, it was fully revealed.
