From the Gospel of St. Luke we receive “the message of the messages”: the Angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will become the mother of God’s Son (cf. Lk 1, 26.). A biblical theme represented by many great artists; the moment when God enters into human history by becoming incarnate in the womb of a woman. It is a subverting event, which disturbs the natural order of things but it is presented with an infinite delicacy, to which Mary offers no resistance. Indeed: she offers all her full readiness to do what God asks. It is the theme depicted in the right transept ceiling.
