Prayers to the Virgin on Annunciation on April 7
The feast of all Christians, the Annunciation is a truly great day, which symbolizes one of the most important moments in the life of the Most Holy Theotokos. No wonder he is very honored among all denominations.
The value of the Annunciation
Annunciation means «good news.» Proceeding from the Gospel of Luke, on April 7, the Archangel Gabriel himself appeared to the Mother of God to tell the good news that she would give birth to the Son of God and the Savior of the world — Jesus Christ.
Up to 14 years, the Virgin Mary lived in the temple, where she was raised and trained. Upon reaching this age, the rules of that time obliged the girl to leave the temple and get married. Maria refused to marry because she swore an oath to God that she would keep her virginity forever. She was sent to the righteous elder Joseph in Nazareth, where Mary began to live without fear for her promise.
She led a modest and detached life.
Some time later, the angel Gabriel appeared to her. With a perplexity, Mary asked how conception is possible while maintaining chastity. The angel replied that conception would be holy, for the Holy Spirit would overshadow it, giving the Savior to the world.
The God-fearing Mary agreed and accepted the message, saying, «Let it be as it pleases my Lord.»
This is the Annunciation, the story of the conception of Jesus Christ. This is the beginning of the Gospel, the beginning of the story of the one who takes over all our sins and will die on the cross.
