It was on this day that the archangel Gabriel came to the Virgin Mary to tell her the good news that she would soon give birth to the Savior of all mankind. SSPDaily tells about it.

When is the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary according to the new calendar

For both Catholics and Orthodox Christians, the Annunciation is a very important holiday. It is traditionally celebrated before Easter.

Previously, Orthodox believers celebrated the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on April 7. But on September 1, 2023, the OCU and the UGCC switched to the New Julian calendar. Therefore, most church holidays are now celebrated 13 days earlier. Therefore, the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 2024 falls on March 25.

Its main purpose is to remind believers that the Son of God came to Earth to atone for human sins.

What does the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary mean?

The origin of this great church holiday can be found in the Gospel of Luke. It is known that the Archangel Gabriel came to the Virgin Mary, who led a pious life with her husband Joseph. The angel told the woman that she would soon give birth to Jesus Christ, who would become the Savior of mankind.

At the same time, Mary remained a virgin in her marriage. Therefore, she could not understand how she could get pregnant. The angel answered that the conception would be immaculate and from the Holy Spirit. Then the Virgin Mary accepted the will of the Lord and became pregnant.

What not to do on the Annunciation of 2024

Believers are advised to put aside all their affairs, go to church and pray on the feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as on other great Christian events.

At this time, Lent is in full swing, but according to the church's charter, it is allowed to relax its rules a bit by adding fish and seafood, hot dishes with oil, and wine to the diet.

In general, it is important to spend this day in a good mood, communicate with friends and family, and ask for forgiveness for your sins. But it is forbidden to swear, quarrel, or shout.
