Dormition of the Theotokos

August 15/28

IN GIVING BIRTH, thou didst preserve thy virginity; in thy dormition, thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. Thou wast translated unto life since thou art the Mother of Life; and by thine intercessions, dost thou redeem our souls from death.

(Dismissal Hymn of the Feast)

Now Featuring:

Saint Gregory Palamas: The Homilies

This English translation and compilation of all the known extant sermons of St. Gregory Palamas (ca. 1296-1359) is a remarkable rendering of the straight- forward style of preaching that endeared this arch- pastor of Thessalonica to his flock. This renowned Father of the Church is at once simple in his presentation and profound in the spiritual inspiration and theological exegesis of his message. The sense is that St. Gregory is standing right before the reader, who will be both moved and edified by the Saint's grace and pastoral compassion and divine vision.
