Magnifying Mary; It Is Truly Meet.

Today, August 15, is the Feast of St. Mary. As the one who on earth stood in the most intimate relationship with the incarnate Son of God, she, of all the human race, must have the place of highest honor in the eternal life of God. (Holy Women, Holy Men)

“It is truly right to bless you, O Theotokos,
ever blessed, and most pure, and the Mother of our God.
More honorable than the Cherubim,
And beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim,
Who without corruption gave birth to God the Word,
And are truly Theotokos; we magnify you.”
