In giving birth you preserved your virginity.
In falling asleep you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos.
You were translated to life O Mother of Life,
and by your prayers you deliver our souls from death.





Most holy Theotokos, entreat your Son on our behalf that He may have mercy on us and save our souls.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
