Does the Annunciation Event have a meaning in Christian marriage? I would say, yes. I understand it as a man and woman asking of the other the question: "Will you take all of me that I hold most precious and beautiful. protect it, cherish it, help it to become alive, so that all of creation will benefit from my being alive, because I've offered my gift of self to you?" I can see some of you smiling knowingly, probably thinking, "That's too idealistic, she's really not being realistic." I tell you it is real. It is possible. Just keep in mind that one person's idealism can be another's realism!
