DATE:          3/23/2017                                    PLACE:    St. Paul Hasang Church (Des Plaines)

SPEAKER:  Fr. Foeckler, Miles Jesu                TOPIC:     Annunciation / Word becomes flesh

 

In catholic calendar, it is separated into three major events.

1) Easter

2) Christmas

3) Annunciation

 

Fr. Foeckler briefly discussed the Easter and Christmas and started focusing on the Annunciation.


 

                                                             Image result for annunciation images



 The Annunciation is when the angel Gabriel visits the Virgin Mary, during which he told her that she would be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  It is celebrated on 25th of  March each year.

 

" Let it be done to me according to your Word" - Mary's response to Angel Gabriel.

 

The "Word" becomes flesh,  which means God became man....it is also called Incarnation.

Incarnation and Annunciation is one of the Feast of Solemnity.

 

Fr. Foeckler shared his favorite scene* from the  Passion of  Christ (movie directed by Mel Gibson) which on 

the 4th Station of the Cross when Jesus meets his mother, Mary says " I am here" and Jesus replies " I make

all things new".  Jesus' reply " I make all things new" is mentioned in Revelation 21:5. 

It is a HOPEFUL expression to all of us.


(*This scene is not mentioned in the bible however, the movie gives an idea of what could have been spoken 

when Jesus encountered Mary.)

 

As Jesus did, we must take up our cross and follow Him.

We must do what the disciples did. We must imitate them.

We must 'embrace' our cross and accept it willingly, no whining, no complaining.

If possible, try to be happy and be peaceful with it, for the sake of the cross, offer it up to the Lord.


 

"If you wish to be my disciple, you must deny yourself and take up your cross and follow me"

                                                                                                                    -Matt 16:24, Mark 8:34

"If you wish to be my disciple, you must deny yourself and take up your cross DAILY and follow me"                                                                                                              -Luke 9:23
