Gospel (Luke 1: 26-38)

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Galatians. (3: 15-22)
Your blessings Father
Brothers and sisters, I give an example from daily life: once a persons will has been
ratified, no one adds to it or annuls it. Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his
offspring; it does not say, And to offsprings, as of many; but it says, And to your
offspring, that is, to one person, who is Christ. My point is this: the law, which came four
hundred thirty years later, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to
nullify the promise. For if the inheritance comes from the law, it no longer comes from the
promise; but God granted it to Abraham through the promise. Why then the law? It was
added because of transgressions, until the offspring would come to whom the promise had
been made; and it was ordained through angels by a mediator. Now a mediator involves
more than one party; but God is one. Is the law then opposed to the promises of God?
Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could make alive, then righteousness would
indeed come through the law. But the scripture has imprisoned all things under the power
of sin, so that what was promised through faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who
believe. Praise be to God always.

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was


sent by God to a town in Galilee called
Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man
whose name was Joseph, of the house of
David. The virgins name was Mary. And
he came to her and said, Greetings,
favored one! The Lord is with you. But
she was much perplexed by his words
and pondered what sort of greeting this
might be. The angel said to her, Do not
be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor
with God. And now, you will conceive in
your womb and bear a son, and you will
name him Jesus. He will be great, and will
be called the Son of the Most High, and
the Lord God will give to him the throne of
his ancestor David. He will reignover the
house of Jacob forever, and of his
kingdom there will be no end. Mary said
to the angel, How can this be, since I am
a virgin? The angel said to her, The Holy
Spirit will come upon you, and the power
of the Most High will overshadow you;
therefore the child to be born will be holy;
he will be called Son of God. And now,
your relative Elizabeth in her old age has
also conceived a son; and this is the sixth
month for her who was said to be barren.
For nothing will be impossible with God.
Then Mary said, Here am I, the servant of
the Lord; let it be with me according to
your word. Then the angel departed from
her. This is the truth. Peace be with
you.

tu nous appelles tre frres et surs, pour te servir et tmoigner
de ton amour dans nos vies quotidiennes. Par lEsprit Saint tu nous
rassembles en glise, tu fais de nous une communaut de foi
limage de la Sainte Famille de Nazareth pour taimer, tadorer et te
rendre grce. Nous te confions toutes nos dmarches pour le
projet de la construction de notre nouvelle glise, celle de la chair
et de la pierre. A lexemple de Jsus-Christ, fais de nous des
donateurs gnreux et des btisseurs forts de ton Royaume, afin
que nous puissions tre solidaires et, mains en mains, nous
btissions, Toronto, une glise nouvelle et sainte, temple de ta
prsence parmi nous et maison pour chacune de nos familles.
Nous te le demandons par lintercession de la Vierge Marie, Notre
Dame du Liban et de tous les saints. Amen
