The story of the Annunciation (the announcing), from the Latin annuntiare, is recounted in Luke’s gospel. At the Annunciation, the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would conceive a Son, and his name would be Jesus. His greeting, “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you” has echoed down through the ages in many prayers, and is known as the “Hail Mary.” Mary was initially confused as to how she would bear God’s Son, since she was a virgin. The angel explained that the Holy Spirit would come upon on her. This is why when we recite the Nicene creed we say “by the power of the Holy Spirit, [Jesus] was born of the Virgin Mary and became man.” The Apostles Creed likewise affirms that Jesus was “conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Thus, the Feast of the Annunciation is the beginning of Jesus’ miraculous life, and it begins with the theotokos conceiving Jesus by the Holy Spirit’s power.
