Holy Saturday reflections from my good friend Msgr. Richard Lavalley. He reflects on Jesus as the firstborn of the dead.
When we hear the “Word became Flesh” we often think of Christmas. But today, on the Feast of the Annunciation, we can come to appreciate more fully the love of God. God’s love, mercy, compassion and forgiveness came to us because of the YES of our Blessed Mother. Our Lady said yes. At that moment, when she said yes, she was greeted by the words of Gabriel, Hail, full of grace.
