Troparion – Tone 4
Today is the prelude of the good will of God,
of the preaching of the salvation of mankind.
The Virgin appears in the Temple of God,
In anticipation proclaiming Christ to all.
Let us rejoice and sing to her: Rejoice,
O Fulfillment of the Creator’s dispensation!
Kontakion – Tone 4
The most pure Temple of the Savior;
the Precious Chamber and Virgin;
the sacred Treasure of the Glory of God,
is presented today to the House of the Lord.
She brings with her the grace of the spirit,
which the angels of God do praise.
Truly this woman is the Abode of heaven!
Please keep the Orthodox Christians of Syria and all the Middle East in your prayers. May the Lord have mercy on all those who suffer for his names sake, and for all those living in the Middle East.
