“The child to be born will be called holy…” In this middle of Lenten observance, we have the Solemnity of the Annunciation. Our salvation got into full gear with a young woman saying “yes” to an angel. Someone once put it: [this Solemnity] makes Lent a special time for any of us who ‘birth’ Jesus in our service to others.” Jesus is Risen and Alive in us when we act with charity and mercy to others. In that sense, we “birth” Jesus for others to behold. We need to put our faith into action.
