"I see you now as a greatly-bright lamp..."
The Annunciation of the Theotokos (source)
I see you now as a greatly-bright lamp founded by God, as a golden Ark of the Law that is passing. Receive, O All Spotless One, Him Who was well pleased to deliver the corrupt nature of mankind through you.
-from the Matins Canon of the Annunciation, written from the voice of the Archangel Gabriel
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
