My first Name Day


While yesterday was the Great Feast of the Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God, today is Joachim and Anna day - My Name Day (my middle name is Anne)!
Troparion (Tone 5)
Let us sing praises to Joachim and Anna,
the couple honored by God
(and they are His kinsmen).
They have borne for us the Maiden
who in a manner beyond understanding
gave birth to Him Who though fleshless,
became the incarnate to save the world.
With her they intercede for our souls.
Kontakion (Tone 2)
Anna rejoices, released from her barrenness,
and nurses her most pure child.
She calls all people to glorify Him
Who gave the Virgin Mother to mankind from her womb
