Continuing to ponder The Annunciation (see https://abbashousetexas.com/2016/12/01/may-it-be-done-unto-me/)–the angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary that she would bear the Savior, and her response–and the soul-stirring painting by Henry Ossawa Tanner, what do you wonder?
I wonder what Mary was doing when Gabriel appeared to her.
I wonder if she was in the middle of prayer, asking God when He would send the Messiah.
I wonder what Mary did after the angel departed.
I wonder if she knew when the Holy Spirit came upon her and overshadowed her to fill her womb with the Christ-child.
I wonder what it felt like to have God growing in her womb.
What do you wonder?
We would love to hear our community ponderings.
