Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers


Marvellous and most strange things the sovereign Master of Heaven from the first accomplished in thee, O thou all-blameless one; for perceptibly He came down from on high like rain in thy pure womb, and He thus proved thee, O Bride of God, a fountain gushing forth every kind of blessing and all good things; as well as a flood flowing with lavish benefactions of remedies unto all that ask thee for strengthening of soul and for the health of body, which thou dost grant to them through the water of God's grace. Stichera from Vespers for the Feast of the Life-Giving Spring, The Pentecostarion
