[[Image:Archangel Gabriel fresco.jpg|100px|left]]The Holy '''''[[Archangel Gabriel]]''''' has been called the leader of the heavenly hosts; he is associated with numerous happenings in [[Holy Scripture]], particularly his revelation to the [[Theotokos]] that she would bear [[Christ]]. Thus his primary role has been called one of announcing the [[Soteriology|salvation]] of mankind. The Church celebrates the [[Synaxis]] of the [[Archangel]] Gabriel on [[March 26]], the day following the Feast of the [[Annunciation]], and again on [[July 13]]; he is also commemorated together with all the Archangels on their Synaxis date, [[November 8]].
