“When one is called by God, it is natural to feel nervous, or unworthy,” writes Archbishop Khajag Barsamian.  “But the Nativity story shows that when God calls us, such fears are immaterial.”

On Thursday, January 6, 2011, the Armenian Church will celebrate the Feast of the Nativity and Theophany of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In Armenian tradition, this feast day commemorates not only the birth of Christ, but also His baptism by John the Baptist. The latter is remembered through the “Blessing of Water” ceremony, which follows the Divine Liturgy on January 6.
