Hail Mary

Hail Mary
          As Anglicans we do not focus much attention on the Saints of the church. From time to time, we may celebrate a particular saint if that saint’s day happens to be a Sunday or we decide to transfer the feast to the closest Sunday. Apart from that, they can go largely unnoticed except for one. Every year during Advent without fail we celebrate Mary. Of all the saints we pick Mary to focus on once a year. Her day is always a Sunday on Advent 3 or 4, depending on the lectionary.
