Gospel: Luke 1:26-38
In today's first reading Isaiah tells us that a maiden shall give birth and his name shall be called Emmanuel, God is with us. Then the psalm says "Let the Lord enter, he is the king of glory!"
Finally the gospel is the Annunciation, when the angel visits Mary and asks her to bear the child of God.
The expectancy is rising. The Lord is coming. God is about to enter the world.
When you think of it, how could the world ever be the same again after such an event?
God has come among us! He who is without beginning has walked on earth. If that doesn't change things, then what does!
