Feast of the Annunciation Resource

The Feast of the Annunciation provides an opportunity to explore Mary’s partnership with God in salvation history – her vision for God’s dream and her “yes” in bringing it forward.  It also provides an opportunity to explore her portrayal in the Qur’an and her relationship to Islam and thus, the ways in which Christianity and Islam share a devotion to her.  In a world where distrust and xenophobia are rampant, these resources and prayers provide a healing antidote.
