Agios Paisios: The Virgin Mary brought to the world the heavenly joy

– Elder, you can ask us for the Megalynario you wrote about the Virgin Mary[1];

– Let’s sing it together. “Many blessings for the sake of God, Mother of the Despot, Blessed, truly, Blessed, as Gabriel evoa, Queen of Angels, guards your slaves.”

Let me tell you now a dogmatic: The Virgin Mary was the Daughter and Mother, Slave and Queen, Queen of the whole world.

Does it fit in this person’s mind? And the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary is something supernatural, out of logic. I wish the Virgin Mary to give you the joy of the Annunciation and the Angel to bless you, so that you may have spiritual progress. Amen.

Elder, a troparion says: “Rejoice, Eva’s joy; her sorrow for your interest is broken, Agni”[2].

– Whatever good man finds to say about the Virgin Mary, he will not be able to express Her majesty. The Virgin with her obedience reopened for us the Paradise, which had been closed by the obedience of Eve.

Eve broke the link that united us with God and brought to the world sorrow and pain[3]· The Virgin Mary reunited the ring and brought to the world the heavenly joy. He connected us with God, since Christ is God-man.

The Archangel Gabriel brought to the world the joyful proclamation that the people, thanks to the Virgin Mary, found “for the sake of God”. The Virgin Mary rejoices, because the Word of God incarnated and redeemed us from sin.

We are also happy, because the Virgin Mary made us white-faced. That is why we chant Christmas: “The desert offers Christ the manger and we humans offer His Mother, the Virgin”[4].
