You guessed it. When the angel Gabriel made the birth announcement to Mary, it was nine months later that the baby was born. So, whenever we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation, you are sure Christmas is right around the corner. The angel Gabriel was a smart angel. He approached Mary with great respect and [...]
