Most Holy Theotokos intercede for us!

"God has clothed himself in humanity,
For me a sufferer he has suffered;
For one condemned he has been judged;
For one buried he has been buried;
But he is risen from the dead
And he cries:
Who will plead against me? I have delivered the one who was condemned,
I have given back life to him who was dead,
I have raised up one who was buried.
Who will dispute my cause? I have abolished death,
I have crushed hell,
I have raised humanity to the highest heavens,
Yes I, the Christ...

I am your forgiveness,
I am the Passover of salvation,
I am your light,
I am your resurrection."

--From the Easter Homily of Melito of Sardis (+2nd century)
