Pondering the Angelus with Art

This week's Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord is a perfect occasion to promote the prayer of the Angelus (even if very soon we will be shifting to the "Regina Coeli" of the Easter season!).

On this day, a prayer by Catherine of Siena:

Today, O Mary,
you have become a book in which our rule is written.
In you, today, is written the wisdom of the eternal Father.
In you, today, is manifested the strength and freedom of all humankind.

The mosaic of the Annunciation is from the chapel of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD missionaries) in Nemi, Italy.
