Daily Catholic Quote from Fr. Robert Barron

"The Annunciation" (detail by Murillo

“The Annunciation” (detail by Murillo

“The Church Fathers were fond of exploring the relationship between Eve, mother of all the living, and the new Eve, Mary the Mother of God. Where Eve grasped and lost, Mary surrendered and received; where Eve said no to the alluring mystery, Mary said yes. The angel of the Lord — an agent from a realm beyond what can be seen and known — appears to the maid of Nazareth and greets her in what Balthasar describes as the language of heaven: ‘Hail, full of grace.’” (Fr. Robert Barron)

March 25 is the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

  1. Hail full of grace, the Lord is with you…the Joyful mysteries of the Rosary is particularly relevant today: the Feast of the Incarnation of the Word (The Annunciation). Thank You Lord!

  2. “Where Eve grasped and lost, Mary surrendered and received”… as a recent ‘coming home’ child of God, I am so amazed about the beauty I’ve missed most of my life. This quote is really beautiful and awe-inspiring. Thank you and keep up the life enriching work all of you do!
