On April 9, the Catholics in Nazareth celebrated the feast of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary. The celebration of the Mass was celebrated by Msgr. Pizzaballa, apostolic administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. After the Mass, the story of the incarnation was read from the Gospel.
This year, Archbishop Emeritus of Trento, Msgr. Luigi Bressan, who is also contributing to the restoration of the Grotto of the Annunciation, was also present at the celebrations.
