Father Faber once said of the Annunciation:

“The Annunciation is the hardest feast in the year to keep as it should be kept.” Fr. F.W. Faber, The Blessed Sacrament

One website called the Day of the Unborn Child is trying to encourage Christians to celebrate this feast day in a more profound and significant way. Here is how they describe what they are about:

“This site was developed to advance the movement toward international recognition of March 25th as the “Day of The Unborn Child,” and equally to promote among Christians the observance of this traditional feast day of the Incarnation honoring Christ’s conception which is currently named ‘The Feast of the Annunciation.’ “

This website is really informative – Some of the topics that you will find are:

Ideas for celebrating the feast

Fascinating facts about this feast

Historical Background on the feast

Worship Resources

Further Reading and Instructional Materials

They also will send you free prayer cards. They are really beautiful cards – I requested them about a year ago.

This website also calls our attention to the fact that over the past 15 years there has been a movement to celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25 as the Day of the Unborn.

Quite a few countries especially in Central and South America have had this day officially recognized as the Day of the Unborn or are working towards this goal. Here is a partial list of these countries:

El Salvador, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Paraguay and The Philippines

Click here to see an article on the Hawaii Right to Life website which provides other details about this movement. The Knights of Columbus also encourage the celebration of Day of the Unborn Child on the feast of the Annunciation. Because March 25th falls on Easter Tuesday – the Annunciation will be celebrated on March 31 this year.
