"My dear, sweet Mother!"


The Most-Holy Theotokos and Christ sweetly kissing (source)
"All the saints wrote many praises to our Panagia. But I, the poor one, have found no words more elegant or sweet to describe her, than to cry out to her at every moment: "My dear Mother! My dear, sweet Mother! When my soul departs may it come into your hands, and through them may it be given to its Creator, your Only-begotten Son."
-Saint Joseph the Hesychast
Όσιος Ιωσήφ ο Ησυχαστής
St. Joseph the Hesychast (source)
Most-Holy Theotokos, save us!
