As a Celestial Messenger, the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Anne and Joachim to announce to them the birth of the Mother of God. He informed Elisabeth and Zachariah of the arrival of Saint John the Baptist. He fed the Mother of God during twelve years in the Temple and was sent by God to announce her she was going to be the Mother of the Saviour. At the time of the Resurrection, Gabriel came down from heaven, wearing a white robe and reassured the spicebearing women saying: "Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said" (Matthew. 28. 5)
