The Readings for the Annunciation
(Transferred)
Ecce ancilla Domini. 
Behold the handmaiden of the Lord.

Our Mother, the Holy Church of Rome, will not allow a feast or Solemnity to impinge on the period between Palm Sunday and the 2nd Sunday of Easter. Anything that needs to be celebrated in that time gets bumped to the first available weekday. Since the 25th of March was Palm Sunday this year, the Annunciation is celebrated today.

But I'm going to keep this short. Here's a question for your meditation:
