The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord is a special time for our ministry, as our campus ministry chapel is named in honor of Our Lady of the Annunciation. A large reproduction of Fra Angelico’s painting of the Annunciation greets students in the narthex of the chapel, and Russian-style icons of Mary and St. Gabriel adorn the wall of the sanctuary on either side of the tabernacle. The top of that wall is emblazoned with Mary’s words to Gabriel, “Be it done unto me according to thy word” (Lk 1:42).
