Amen
Festal Theotokion

misoundes Sion, eshinthite apo tou Kyriou; os hortos gar, piri esesthe apexirameni. [2]

Those

who hate Zion shall be put to confusion by the Lord; like grass in the fire shall they be withered up. [2] to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit

St

Nektarios knew that Thou were portrayed by the Jar wherein the Manna of old was preserved, O Pure One, and by the Lamp that was bright with Divine Light. And he, as a True Worker of Virtue, was worthily Illumined in his soul and his mind by Thy Radiance. Therefore he proclaimed it in Orthodox Manner, that Thou, O Theotokos, art at the same time a Pure Virgin and the Mother of Christ our Giod. He now enjoys Thy Son’s Incomprehensible Holy Light, O Lady All Immaculate, and with the Angels, he glorifies Thine Ineffable Glory!.
