July 25: The Dormition of St. Anna the mother of Most Holy Theotokos
St. Anna, the mother of the Virgin Mary, was the youngest daughter of the priest Nathan from Bethlehem, descended from the tribe of Levi. She married St. Joachim, who was a native of Galilee. St. Anna was childless, but after twenty years, through the fervent prayer of both spouses, an angel of the Lord announced to them that they would be the parents of a daughter Who would bring blessings to the whole human race.
To all the lovely Girls who bear the name Anna including our Presvetera Happy Name day
