“In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.” (LK 1: 26-27)

The angel Gabriel, who “was sent from God,” perfectly knew where (“to a town of Galilee called Nazareth), when (“in the sixth month) and to whom (“to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary”) to go. God knows everything about us because He cares. He knows our past and present and wants to help us to fulfill our future based on His will.

“O Key of David, opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom: come and free the prisoners of darkness!” (Gospel Acclamation)
