Praise Book for St. Mary
St. Mary, the Ever-Virgin Holy Theotokos and intercessor of the human race prophesied and said in Luke 1:48 "For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed." She is worthy to be praised because the Father chose her, the Holy Spirit overshadowed her and the Son was born from her. During the fast of St. Mary, the Church designates special hymns of praise and glorification for the Virgin. May her prayers and intercessions be with us all.
