On March 26th, the day after the Feast of the Annunciation, we commemorate the Lord’s messenger Gabriel.  Gabriel’s name means “hero of God.” As a hero for God, Gabriel is remembered best for being the angel who announced to Mary that she would be the mother of God’s only Son.  Thus, we remember Gabriel to help guide us in our journey to everlasting life with our Father and we can ask Gabriel to help us say “yes” to God as Mary did so many years ago. NOTE: The Synaxis of the Archangel Gabriel replaces the 4th All Souls Saturday, but for pastoral reasons a Panachida for the Faithful Departed may be sung after Divine Liturgy.  A Panachida will occur on Sunday, March 27th.
