Pope at Mass: “We are before a mystery”

Reflecting during the homily on Wednesday morning during the liturgy for the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Pope Francis repeats the Gospel for his homily, passage, he says that the Madonna herself would have recounted. (Playback of liturgy included)

Pope Francis celebrated the liturgy for the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord on Wednesday morning at the Casa Santa Marta chapel. He began the liturgy announcing that the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul, present at the liturgy, would renew their vows together with all their fellow sisters throughout the world. These sisters direct the Santa Marta dispensary. There, the sisters provide medical assistance to children and families in need. It is located just a stone’s throw away from the Pope’s residence inside the Vatican.
