The birth of Blessed Virgin Mary is not described in the Bible. The story became known from evangelical sources only.
“The Blessed Virgin’s parents – Anna and Joachim – did not have children for a long time. Once Anna went to the garden and there an angel sent by God told her she will have a daughter and all the peoples of the world will envy her.” This the first part of Saint Mary’s birthday. She was the only to be granted the name of Blessed Virgin by God.
“She was virtuous and pious mother and became the embodiment of family hearth keeper. She serves as an example for each Armenian mother or woman who is going to give birth to a child”, the Armenian Apostolic Church instructs.
On September 8 the Armenian Apostolic Church celebrated the birth of Blessed Virgin Mary.
