Date memory of the righteous Joachim and Anna

On 22 September the Church commemorates the Holy and righteous ancestors of God Joachim and Anna.

The next day after the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos Orthodox Church celebrates the memory of the parents of the virgin Mary – the Holy and righteous ancestors of God Joachim and Anna. The name “Bogiatzi” they got, because they are the direct ancestors of the Lord Jesus Christ.

According to Tradition, Joachim and Anna were a pious couple, a Royal family lived in Jerusalem (according to another version: in Nazareth), but to old age had no children. After the priest of the temple of Jerusalem refused to accept Joachim’s sacrifice, the couple began praying for the gift of Chad. The Lord responded to their prayers, and soon Anna had a daughter, Mary. At the age of three She was given to the Temple, which was raised to 12 years.

Joachim died a few years after the introduction of the Theotokos into the Temple, at the age of 80 years, and Anna two years later that she also held at the Temple at the age of 70 years.

Bogiatzi Holy righteous Joachim and Anna commemorated on the dismissal of every Church service.

The home in Nazareth

Righteous Joachim and Anna lived in Nazareth. Their house was located to the North of the Temple in Jerusalem, near the gate, facing Gethsemane and called Owcami, Lion or Stepanovym (it was through this gate led out of the first Martyr Stephen to death).

Abbot Daniel wrote in his notes: “Here is a small stone cave, beneath the altar in this cave the virgin was born, it also contains the tomb of Joachim and Anna. Nearby the porch of Solomon, where is the temple called Ovca font, and where Christ healed the paralytic. The place is West of the house of Joachim and Anna, at a distance of a thrown stone. If from there, go East, close to the city gates that lead to Gethsemane”.

Today, the cave where the virgin was born, the temple is located. In fact, in this place two temples:

  • Catholic Cathedral of St Anne.
  • The Greek Church of Joachim and Anna.
  • Directly above the cave is the Greek Church.
