March 25: Day to Defend Life

annunciation

The Annunciation by Leonardo Da Vinci

Talk about life’s little ironies.

Today begins the opening arguments before the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood vs. Sebelius case on religious liberty. Yes, it has to do with objecting to supplying certain sorts contraception through their employer paid health insurance plan.

Today is also the Solemnity of the Annunciation, the day we celebrate when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Blessed Mother and said:

Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
But she was greatly troubled at what was said
and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
Then the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God.
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall name him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High,
and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,
and of his Kingdom there will be no end.”
