"In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you."
With these words as recorded in Luke 1: 26-28, the angel Gabriel came to Mary announcing the she had found favor with God.
This is surely among the most beautiful biblical passages, marking the announcement to what was to become mother Mary of Jesus.
