Nativity of the Theotokos / Рождество Пресвятыя Богородицы
...Here we are, with the gift of God, at the most beautiful and joy-giving feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God. This feast also marks the beginning of the church year. This beginning has been placed under the sign of joy; joy brought to the world by the conception and birth of Mother of God from the holy, righteous, and divine parents Joachim and Anna. It is proper to thank the Lord for this great gift. And especially today we ought to thank the good Lord for the great gift He gave us, through the birth of Mother of God, the Mother of us all.
Today, as for all celebration dedicated to the Mother of God, we ought to fulfill the prophecy of Mother of God who said, Behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed (Lk. 1:48). And even if our hymns and prayers and veneration be unworthy and far from the purity and beauty of the Mother of God, the Mother of the Lord will not reject us, but will receive all with motherly love for her children, who are only now learning to speak...
