Most Holy Theotokos intercede for us!

Thursday, December 16, 2004

And it came to pass that Mary
was enrolled with Joseph the old man,
in Bethlehem, since she was of the seed of David,
and was great with the Lamb, without seed.
And when the time for delivery drew near,
and they had no place in the village,
the cave did appear to the queen as a delightful palace.
Verily, Christ shall be born,
raising the likeness that fell of old.

(Another Troparion hymn for the Sunday before Christmas)

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
