But the angel said to her, 
“Do not be afraid, Mary; 
you have found favor with God.
You will conceive and give birth to a son, 
and you are to call him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called 
the Son of the Most High.
The Lord God will give him 
the throne of his father David,
and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; 
his kingdom will never end.”
                                                                         Luke 1:30-33

Collect:
Heavenly Father,
you chose the Virgin Mary,
full of grace,
to be the mother of our Lord and Saviour.
Fill us with your grace,
that in all things
we may embrace your will,
and with her rejoice in your salvation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
