Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple
Commemorated November 21
Troparion of the Mother of God, Tone 4
Today is the prelude of God's goodwill and the prophecy of the salvation of men. The Virgin appears openly in the temple of God and foretells Christ to all. So let us cry to her with loud voices: Rejoice, thou who art the fulfillment of the Creator's providence.
Kontakion of the Mother of God, Tone 4
The most pure Temple of the Saviour, the most precious bridal chamber and Virgin, the sacred treasury of the glories of God, today enters into the house of the Lord, bringing with her the grace that is the Divine Spirit. And the Angels of God sing of her: This is the heavenly tabernacle.
