The virgin’s name was Mary

“The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.” (LK 1: 26-27)

Last week we celebrated the solemnity of St. Joseph, today we celebrate the solemnity of Annunciation of the Lord. And again, God perfectly knows who we are, where we are, to whom we are related and what are our names. Our Lord doesn’t come to the human beings, to the earth population, He comes to us—recognized by names, by cities, by relatives, by homes; He doesn’t come as a stranger, He comes as an inmate.

“The Word of God became flesh and made his dwelling among us; and we saw his glory.” (Gospel Acclamation)
