Original Annunciation Artwork
Original artwork by Br Luis Alberto de Avila, LC
The Annunciation is a humble, hidden event that no one saw or knew, except for Mary. But at the same time it is a decisive moment in the history of humanity. When the Virgin said “Yes” to the Angel’s Annunciation, Jesus was conceived and with Him began a new era in history, which was eventually sanctioned by the “new and eternal covenant.”
Pope Benedict XVI, March 25, 2007
