Celebrating the Annunciation ... words and art

I'll admit it's the same Annunciation quote I shared last year, but isn't it a good one to hear again?
del Sarto


 "... [A]fter the Our Father, the Hail Mary is the most beautiful of all prayers. It is the perfect compliment the most high God paid to Mary through his archangel in order to win her heart. So powerful was the effect of the greeting upon her, on account of its hidden delights, that despite her great humility, she gave her consent to the incarnation of the Word." -- St. Louis de Montfort
Fra Angelico


Murillo
Surikov


de Champaigne
