The Dormition
August 15/28

In giving birth thou didst preserve thy virginity; in thydormition thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. Thou was translatedunto life, since thou art the Mother of Life; and by thine intercessionsdost thou deliver our souls from death.


The grave and death could not hold the Theotokos, who issleepless in her intercessions and an unfailing hope in her mediations.For as the Mother of Life she was translated unto life by Him Who dweltin her ever-virgin womb
