God became man

Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel announced to the Virgin Mary that the Son of God would become a baby in her womb. Mary’s obedient “yes” reversed the disobedience of Eve and brought about our salvation.
This day, March 25th, is very meaningful in a number of ways. There is a tradition that this is the day in which Adam and Eve were created, and there is another tradition that March 25th was the day of the crucifixion. On this day the events of our salvation have played out in a most wonderous way. Let us rejoice in God’s saving work!
Today is the beginning of our salvation,
The revelation of the eternal mystery!
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
Rejoice, O Full of Grace,
The Lord is with You!
Troparion – Annunciation of our Most Holy Lady
