The Annunciation Puzzle


"Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word."

With the feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary coming up in a couple weeks, I pulled out this beautiful new puzzle Friday afternoon for our family to start working on assembling. I thought it might take a week or two to finish but they had it completed by dinner! 

We've assembled many puzzles in the past and this was such a fun one with lots of vibrant color variations making it possible for everyone to help. I would love to add more of the Joyful Mysteries puzzles to our collection. 

The puzzles in this series also include a beautiful sacred art poster in each box along with an insert explaining the meaning and significance of these timeless works of art.  Our children found joy exploring this First Joyful Mystery depicted by Blessed Fra Angelico, who Pope John Paul II declared patron of Catholic artists.


























.: Giveaway :. 

If you'd like a chance to win this puzzle for your family please leave a comment on this post and enter using the Rafflecopter box below:



I'm also giving away a second one over on Instagram. I'll leave the giveaways open until 3/18/22 at 11:59PM PST and draw the winner on 3/19/22, the feast of St. Joseph.

O God, Who in Thy love didst send an Angel to the Blessed Virgin, to tell her that she would be the Mothers of the little Jesus, we ask Thee to hear the prayers which she makes for us in heaven. - A Young Catholic's Daily Missal

    1. Oh wow! We have done many 1000 piece puzzles, but I don't think we've attempted a 2000 piece yet! We did to a Last Supper Puzzle back in 2011 - so fun to look back and see how young our older children were way back then. They've always enjoyed puzzles!
