Changes

Fra Angelico's Annunciation

Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.  And I don't like the fact that the "powers that be" changed the date.  I have always been pregnant with Mary from March 25, (usual date of the Annunciation), to December 25, (birth of Christ).  But today is April 9th!  I assume the date was changed because March 25 this year was in Holy Week.  It just wouldn't do to celebrate Jesus' life beginning when that was the week His life was ending.

Oh well, babies usually aren't born on their due date, anyway.
