Solemnity of the Incarnation of the Lord

March 25, 2021

The date today, March 25, is especially significant for Catholics. On this day we remember two particularly important episodes in the life of Jesus Christ and our Lady, for on the one hand we celebrate the Annunciation and the  Incarnation of the Lord.

The Annunciation is recounted by the Gospel of Luke. It tells of angel Gabriel’s visit to Mary in the city of Nazareth to notify her that she was the chosen one: “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and she will be called Son of the Most High”. Faced with this news, Our Lady replied, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word.”

The other side of this event is the Incarnation of the Lord, which we celebrate in the same way. The Word of God, through the power exercised by the Holy Spirit, assumes being a man with all the conditions proper to our nature. The Son of God did not cling to his divine condition and assumed the condition of man seeking salvation for humanity, “becoming one of many…”.

On this day of the great feast in the Church, we thank the “Yes” that Milagros Gamarra, Hija de Jesus from Spain, uttered before the Lord 50 years ago.

Looking back I could only get to appreciate everything I’ve been through, what I’ve enjoyed and learned in every place where I’ve been assigned, to the people I’ve shared the learning process that I went through in my life. I thank God especially, how He has led me and leads me to be doing and being what He wants from me at every moment.

Thank you, Milagros, for your life brought in Vigo, Segovia, Salamanca (currently), Almería, Madrid, Granada… and wherever God wants to bring you in the future.
