“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 of the Feast of the Annunciation
Today we celebrate the first instance of the Incarnation of Christ! Today is certainly the beginning of our salvation.
