The Protection of our Most Holy Lady the Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary

Today the faithful celebrate the feast with joy
illumined by your coming, O Mother of God.
Beholding your pure image we fervently cry to you:
"Encompass us beneath the precious veil of your protection;
deliver us from every form of evil by entreating Christ,
your Son and our God that He may save our souls."

Toparion Tone 4

With all my admiration and love,
