(April 7, 2017) -Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin

On this joyful occasion of the Annunciation of the Holy Virgin Mary, We bring our Pontifical blessings to our people and congratulate all women on the Day of Motherhood and Beauty.

Dear ones, today, from the Holy Altars of our Holy Church, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, blessings are distributed to all faithfull, all pregnant women are blessed and the angelic appeal of the Annunciation of the Holy Vrgin Mary is transferred, to be happy, for the Lord is with you (cf. Luke 1:28). For centuries, our Christian nation has been encouraged and strengthened through this radiant annunciation, and our mothers and sisters, having the perfect example of the Blessed Virgin Mary as a perfect Mother role model, have educated their children through faith, love, and devotion for the Homeland, and bring their indispensable contribution to our national- religious and social life.

Our prayers and wish is that strengthened through the mystery of this cherished Feast,our women, and mothers continue to add to their cherished efforts, for the sake of our country’s progress, our people’s welfare, and the safety and happiness of their families. May all mothers embrace their children with a joyful heart and educate them in peace and security.

With Blessings
KAREKIN II
CATHOLICOS OF ALL ARMENIANS
