Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers


As the Virgin's parents led her to the doors of the Temple, she was surrounded by angels, and all the heavenly hosts rejoiced. Although the angels knew nothing of the power of this mystery, as the Lord's servants they obeyed His command to serve at her entry. They marvelled when they saw that the most pure vessel of the virtues bore the tokens of everlasting purity and were amazed that while she was clothed in flesh, no stain of sin could ever dray near her; then they preceded to do the will of the Lord and to perform what they had been instructed to do. a Homily of St. George of Nicomedia on the Entrance of the Most Holy Theotokos, in St. Dimitry of Rostov, Great Collection of the Lives of Saints,s Vol. 3
