Its March 25, the feast of the Annunciation and it has been snowing all day long! So I give you my favorite picture of Our Lady of the Snows, a feast that is celebrated in August. (Snow in August? I’ll tell you the whole story some time.)

You also have to listen to this (I think I post this every Annunciation, but I don’t care, its beautiful and you will love it, promise): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pliqObTHxUQ

This fresco by Fra Angelico is one of my favorite depictions of the Annunciation. It is in a cell in the monastery of San Marco in Florence, Italy. I envy the monk that had this “come una volta.”

The figure you see standing in the background, watching the Annunciation take place is St. Peter Martyr, a Dominican saint. Fra Angelico includes this saint in a lot of his paintings at the monastery of San Marco.
