Happy Feast Day

"O ye apostles,
assembled here
from the
ends of the earth,
bury my body
in Gethsemane:
and Thou,
O my Son and God,
receive my spirit."

The Dormition of Our Most Holy
Lady the Theotokos

aka The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The gates of heaven were opened wide and the angels sang, as Christ recieved the virgin treasure of His own Mother. Cherubim withdrew before thee in exultation, while seraphim glorified thee in thy joy. (Matins Canon 1:4, Tone 1 by St. Cosmas)
