Contemplating Christ in the Annunciation
Through the Lens of Sacred Scripture
Tuesday Evening 7:00 – 9:00pm
20th September 2022
“The contemplation of Christ has an incomparable model in Mary … The eyes of her heart already turned to Him at the Annunciation, when she conceived Him by the power of the Holy Spirit,”.
St John Paul ii, Rosarium Virginis Mariae 10
In this session, we take a closer look at the Annunciation of the Angel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary through the lens of Sacred Scripture. As we contemplate this moment when God assumed a human nature in the Person of Jesus Christ, we consider the unique role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in her Son’s plan for the salvation of the world.
The Structure of the Evening
The evening will begin at 7:00pm, and we will have two 45-minute sessions with a 15-minute break between sessions..
How it Works
Once you have registered, you will receive an email on Monday evening (19th September) containing a link for each of the two sessions.
On Tuesday evening there is an optional test meeting at 6:50pm – for anyone who wishes to practice clicking the link and making sure they can see and hear without any problems. Then, we begin promptly at 7:00pm with the first session. To “enter the meeting room”, you simply click the link in your email, follow the directions, and you are in! There is no need for any app or advanced computer or technical skill.
Real-time Interactive Participation
Once you are in the “meeting room”, you can see and hear everything. To ask questions, or participate in the discussion, you simply un-mute your microphone (by depressing your space-bar), or you can opt just to listen. We prefer everyone’s web-cam to be turned on, so that we’re all visitble to each other, but you can opt to turn off your web-cam. You can ask questions, contribute to the discussion and participate just as you would if you were onsite – all from the comfort of your home!
The Session is FREE!
