Homily on the Dormition of the Theotokos

∼ Words from the Church Fathers ∼

“The Most Holy Mother of God prays for us ceaselessly. She is always visiting us. Whenever we turn to her in our heart, she is there. After the Lord, she is the greatest protection for mankind.

How many churches there are in the world that are dedicated to the Most Holy Mother of God! How many healing springs where people are cured of their ailments have sprung up in places where the Most Holy Theotokos appeared and blessed those springs to heal both the sick and the healthy!

She is constantly, by our side, and all too often we forget her.”

+Elder Thaddeus, Homily on the Dormition of the Theotokos
