Today is the celebration of love and each of us must bring joy to their loved ones, – Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia, His Holiness and Beatitude Ilia II stated after the festival liturgy at Sameba (Holy Trinity) Cathedral in Tbilisi.
Ilia II congratulated the believers on Annunciation Day and spoke about the significance of this holiday.
“Annunciation is a great holiday. Today is the celebration of love and each of us must bring joy to their loved ones,” – Patriarch stated.
The holiday depicts the primary annunciation that was made by Archangel Gabriel to Virgin Mary about birth of Jesus Christ.
According to the Christian faith, while Virgin Mary was reading the Bible, Archangel Gabriel appeared and told her she would soon give birth to a son, who would be named Jesus.
