REFLECTION ON THE DORMITION OF THE HOLY THEOTOKOS

 

MAY THE NAME OF THE LORD BE BLESSED!

Brothers and Sisters:

Please find attached below a Spiritual Reflection on tomorrow's Great Feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos. Prepare for this feast of the Mother of God by spending time reading it and praying to the Ever-Virgin Mother of God that she intercede for us on our pilgrim journey to greater intimacy with her Divine Son.. Join us tomorrow for the Holy Liturgy wherein we commemorate the moment when she was taken up into the Heavenly Kingdom -- there to fervently pray for us and for our salvation.

We fly unto thy patronage, O Holy Mother of God! Reject not our petitions and needs, but in thy lovingkindness hear and answer us, O Most Glorious Virgin mother of Christ our God! Amen.
