Lord our God,
today we relive the angel's announcement
to the Virgin Mary.
By welcoming your word,
Mary allowed the Word to become flesh.
Make us open and willing to do your will, as she was,
and help us welcome the salvation you grant us
in Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord.
Heb 10:4-10 (vigil); Isa 7:10-14; Eph 1:3-12; Lk 1:26-38
