Feast of the Annunciation and the YES that changed the world

Feast of the Annunciation
25th March
I am sure many of you, like me, love the art work of Julie Vivas and have poured over many a children’s book (Possum Magic, Our Granny etc) enjoying her work. One that I bought for myself some years ago is The Nativity in which all the characters hail from the Australian bush.
I love this picture of the angel Gabriel having a chat with Mary over a cuppa. Not the fine art that we usually see in depictions of the Annunciation down through the ages, but one which might bring a smile and remind us of our own annunciations around many a kitchen table. Classical or contemporary art, the message remains the same –
“Be it done unto me according to thy word…”
Gabriel and Mary, come to meet us this day and speak to us of God
Thank you Jamboroo Abbey for this beautiful reflection.
How i love Julie Vivas’ illustrations.  And as a child how I loved the Feast of the Annunciation where Mary as a young girl said ‘YES’   and the exact 9 months till 25th December was so neat.

Now I love the idea of our own annunciations
and all our sharing  around our Kitchen table.
