Did you notice? There was blip in the rhythm of Lent today. We celebrated the feast of the Annunciation – the moment when Mary’s ‘yes’ changed things forever for humankind.
This year, the feast happens to come during the third week of Lent – just a couple of days after we hear the story of Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, to consider the divine greetings these two women received.
