December 18 - St. Gatian
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you" (Luke 1: 26-28).
“Hail, Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.” We say the words of the angel Gabriel every time we pray the Hail Mary. This should help remind us how important Mary is for our lives.
Blessed Mother, I love you and I need you.
