Annunciation of the Theotokos, March 25
Look, I am creating new heavens and a new earth. The past will not remain in the memory nor will it rise up over the heart. But you will delight and rejoice forever in these things which I bring forth' (Isa. 65:17-18). Or again, 'Joy and happiness will be found in this, a blessing and a voice of praise. And it will be so month after month, from sabbath to sabbath' (Isa. 51:3; 66:23). And again, 'They will have joy and gladness; pain and lamentation shall flee' (Isa. 35:10)."
