Annunciation of the Lord
New clip of Kalos Art dedicated to one of the central epizodes in Christian tradition - Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Blessed Mary will give a birth to a son, The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and his kingdom will never end!
First we included more information into the video, which was shorten after. So here are few notes:
* "Pre-annunciation of Anna". Anna was s a mother of Blessed Mary. Its written in "Protevangelium of James" by James - the brother of Jesus and son of Joseph from first marriage.
"And, behold, an angel of the Lord stood by, saying: Anna, Anna, the Lord has heard your prayer, and you shall conceive, and shall bring forth; and your seed shall be spoken of in all the world. And Anna said: As the Lord my God lives, if I beget either male or female, I will bring it as a gift to the Lord my God; and it shall minister to Him in holy things all the days of its life. 1 Samuel 1:11 And, behold, two angels came, saying to her: Behold, Joachim your husband is coming with his flocks. For an angel of the Lord went down to him, saying: Joachim, Joachim, the Lord God has heard your prayer. Go down hence; for, behold, your wife Anna shall conceive".
* "Ave Maria" includes 2 fragments from St Luke: its Annunciation and the following it Visitation - of Mary to Elizabeth, when Mary heard the Annunciation from Elizabeth. Hovewer there are more added to Ave Maria from other source.
* In Ortodox tradition title of Mary is Theotokos - God-Bearer - Θεοτόκος on Greek. One of the wonderful tales of M. Pavic decicated to first letter of Her name - Θ: its called "Under the sign of Virgo"- from his book "Iron curtain". Main hero - Radacha Chihorich -learn just that first letter and building few churches during the war with Turkey. The line what all that churches made have a Θ pattern. Highly advice to read!
