Feast of the Annunciation

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation, celebrating old Gabriel's visit to Mary with her new job description. 


Annunciation
Chiesa di San Gottardo, Carmine Superiore

Wouldn't life be so much more magical if instead of getting the news of impending motherhood from a little plastic stick covered in pee-pee, all mothers-to-be were visited by an angel conjuring flowers out of the air...?

PS Has anyone spotted Yulia Tymoshenko in this picture? Or is it just my imagination?

I see her too!

Here in Sweden, we celebrate Annunciation by eating waffles!

Yes, Yulia, after a hard days night!

Oh mamma said...

Maybe it is not an angel who tells you, that your pregnant, but it is sure an angel you are holding in your arms nine months later.

I see the resemblance!

What a lovely thought - so awe inspiring to have an angel visit!
