One of the main and biggest Mother of God feasts of the year is the “Entry” of the Virgin Mary. Our Church honors her on November 21, with special splendor.
The importance of this holiday is great and sacred. It is the basis and the beginning for all the later life of the Virgin.
As we know, the Virgin Mary was born to old parents, Joachim and Anna, who had begged God with great pain to give them a child and dedicate him to His Temple. Indeed, that’s what they did.
That is, when Mary was three years old, her parents themselves brought her to the Temple and delivered her into the hands of Zacharias the priest. He embraced her, blessed her and said: “May the Lord magnify your name in all generations. With you the nations will be blessed and the Lord will redeem the children of Israel.” And he raised the three-year-old Mary inside the altar, where God graced her.
And the Virgin Mary was blessed and with joy of soul she departed and everyone spiritually celebrated that she stayed in the Holy Temple, to be sanctified and later become the Mother of God himself.
