Today is of course the day we celebrate the “fullness of time”.
In the fullness of time, the Eternal Word, the Second Person, took our humanity into an indestructible bond with His divinity.
Today is the Feast of the Annunciation. It is nine months from Christmas.
Because of can. 1251 members of the Latin Church, usually bound to do penance on Fridays of Lent, are not bound today.
The people who put together the calendar that hangs on the walls of offices of the Roman Curia seem to have been unaware of can. 1251. You can see at the bottom of today’s page “Astinenza dalle carni”.
But wait! What is this we see?
It is the feast of the St. Dismas, the Good Thief.
Here is his entry from the Martyrologium Romanum:
2. Commemoratio sancti latronis, qui, in cruce Christum confessus, ab eo meruit audire: “Hodie mecum eris in paradiso”.
And from today’s LENTCAzT you can hear more about the Station, San Vitale in Fossa.
