|The Annuciation of the Theotokos (The God-bearer)|
Icon written by Charles Rohrbacher
After Mary said "Yes" to the angel, she conceived Jesus in her womb. This is the day Jesus came into the world as a human being. Normally celebrated on March 25, because the feast was during Lent this year, it was delayed until April 8.
Full of Grace
The Lord is with you
Blessed are you among women
And blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our death.
