And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”

Luke 1:30-33
The Archangel Gabriel, circa 1983

The Archangel Gabriel practiced his lines diligently on a small rural bus on the way home from nursery, announcing that a Child will be born.

The rumour of his mother’s hypothesised condition was spread all round the countryside, but on the day he performed beautifully!
