March 25: The Annunciation & Saint Dismas

Two Opposite Feast Days on One Day
Intriguingly, March 25 celebrates the Annunciation and Saint Dismas.  Very compelling, for the Annunciation celebrates the time just before Jesus was to become incarnated within the womb of Mary ... while Saint Dismas reminds us of the moments just before Jesus died.  Life to death.

The Annunciation

you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall name him Jesus."

   - Luke 1:31

"Amen, I say to you,
today you will be with me in Paradise."

  - Luke 23:43
