Each week of Advent we will be releasing short podcasts that are meditations on one aspect of Mary's life related to Advent. This is the first episode of our Advent Marian Meditations, and it is about the Annunciation. We hope you can pray with this podcast, perhaps as a new prayer practice for Advent. This podcast features a Scripture reading, reflection questions, and soothing music to lead you deeper into prayer. Come back next week for the next episode on the Immaculate Conception.
