"O the wonders of the Ever-virgin..."

The Dormition of the Most-holy Theotokos (source)
O the wonders of the Ever-virgin and Mother of God, surpassing mind! For she dwelt in a tomb, and showed it to be Paradise, which we stand beside today, rejoicing as we chant: praise the Lord, O you works of the Lord, and exalt Him supremely unto all the ages.
-Excerpt from the Canon for the Dormition of the Theotokos

Most-holy Theotokos, save us!

Thank you for your website. We have not been able to reach Abbott Chariton of Holy Monastery of Macheros in Nicosia and we were hoping you might know what has become of him and possibly how to contact him. He was our priest and spiritual Father here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA in the 1980s and my husband visited him in Cyprus in 2009.

Best regards,
Margaret and DJ Nickles
