The Meeting of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Temple
Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, full of grace!
From you shone the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God.
Enlightening those who sat in darkness!
Rejoice, and be glad, O righteous elder;
You accepted in your arms the Redeemer of our souls,
Who grants us the Resurrection.
Great Vespers last night was lovely. I read for the first time. When John asked me to I was a bit taken aback. How could I read and keep up with the girls? The Lord was surely present. Little one rested silently in Nina's arms while middle one stood quietly at my feet.
