Advent #1 Gabriel to Mary
The text for Sunday is Luke 1:28 "Hail O favored One, the Lord is with you!" The message of angels is never something I really tried to dig into other than the expected announcements of the coming Messiah. But when you take Gabriel's words to Mary and personalize them for her....is it possible to personalize them for you and me? Is that exegetically honest and fair? Are those words meant to travel across time? What remains unique to that divine moment and what's eternal? Is Gabriel still speaking today? This is a fun adventure for me!
