A Joyous Feast of the Presentation of Lord in the Temple to All! 2017


The Meeting of Our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Wishing all a Joyous Feast!  

Troparion, tone 1: Rejoice, thou who art full of grace, Mother of God and Virgin, for from thee arose the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, to give light to those in darkness. Rejoice thou also, righteous elder, who didst take in thy arms the Redeemer of our souls who also gives us the grace of resurrection.
