Burgos Annunciation

I love this medieval sculpture of the Annunciation, which is in the south transept of Burgos Cathedral, by the cloister door. It looks like Our Lady and the archangel Gabriel are having a gossip! The faces are charming, and their slight smiles look like they're exchanging a little secret. Perhaps they are smiling in this way because they are plotting the end of the Devil's reign.


For through Our Lady's "Yes" to the angel's message, by her "Yes" to God's plan of salvation for all creation through the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, God has triumphed over sin and death.


25 March is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.
