19-6 Annunciation

(by Plamen Sivov), last updated: 31-Jul-1994 (This entry is in Bulgarian)

25 Maj - Blagoveshtenie. (Annunciation)

Edin ot naj-svetlite pravoslavni praznici. V neznachitelnoto gradche
Nazaret edna mlada devica, sgodena za vdoveca Josif, poluchava otkrovenieto,
za koeto vekove nared sa mechtali pokolenija evrejski zheni - da bqdat udo-
stoeni s chestta da rodjat i vqzpitat bqdeshtija Mesija, spasitelja ne samo
na evreite, no i na celija choveshki rod ot okovite na greha i smqrtta.
Ot oskqdnite biblejski tekstove i apokrifnata ranna hristijanska li-
teratura Maria ni se otkriva kato neobiknovena zhena, nesluchajno izbrana za
velikata misija na bogovqplqshtenieto. NeSluchajno Cqrkvata ja naricha s naj-
razlichni imena, otrazjavashti nravstvenata j chistota i pokornost sprjamo
Boga - "prechista", "presveta"; kakto i osnovnoto j kachestvo - Bogorodica,
zhenata, ot kojato Bog poluchava chovechestvoto si, neobhodimo za pqlnotata
na izkupitelnata misija na Hrista.

Simvolichno vseki ot nas nosi Hrista v sebe si, v mjarata na vjarata
si i dobrite si dela. Za da napredvame v hristijanskite dobrodeteli obache,
neobhodimo e kato Maria da se pokorim na Boga, da se smirim "dori do smqrt",
za da poluchim blagodatta v pqlnota.
Neka na tozi den si pozhelaem duhovni ochi da vizhdame angela do se-
be si i neka se podgotvim da posreshtnem v duh na smirenie i chistota veli-
kata vest za Hristovoto vqzkresenie. Amin.

Sledvat molitvite za tozi den, cheteni na liturgijata:

Molitva kqm Bogorodica (Bogorodice, Devo; Hail Mary) - na slavjanski:

Bogorodice, Devo, radujsja! Blagodatnaja Marie, Gospod s toboju;
Blagoslovena si v zhenah i blagosloven plod chreva tvoego, jako
Spasa rodila esi dush nashih.

Rejoice, Virgin of God! Blessed Mary, God is with you;
Blessed are you amongst women and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
because you have given birth to the Savior of our souls.

Dostojno est (Meet It Is):

Dostojno est jako voistinu blazhiti tja Bogorodicu,
prisnoblazhennuju i preneporochnuju i mater Boga nashego.
Chestnejshuju heruvim i slavnejshuju bez sravnenija serafim;
Bez iztlenija Boga Slova rozhdshuju, sushtuju Bogorodicu tja
velichaem.

It is right and just to bless you, Oh Theotokos,
everblessed and pure and the Mother of our God.
More honorable than the cherubim and more glorious beyond compare
than the seraphim;
Without defilement you gave birth to God the Word;
True Theotokos, we magnify you.
