Pope at Santa Marta reflects on mystery of Incarnation


During his homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis reflected on the mystery of the Incarnation, allowing the reading from Luke's Gospel to speak for itself.

POPE FRANCIS
“Perhaps the best thing we can do right now is re-read this passage, thinking that it was the Madonna who recounted it.”

He concluded the homily on the feast of the Annunciation by simply stating, “This is the mystery.”
