Feast of the Annuciation (Lady Day)

With such glad dreams I sought this holy place
And now with wondering eyes and heart I stand
Before this supreme mystery of Love:
Some kneeling girl with passionless pale face,
An angel with a lily in his hand
And over both the white wings of a dove

--from Ave Maria Gratia Plena by Oscar Wilde

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
