St. Silouan the Athonite: "She is our joy and our hope!"

The Most-holy Theotokos and Christ, "More Spacious than the Heavens" (source)
A remarkable and incomprehensible thing. [The Theotokos] lives in the Heavens and ceaselessly beholds the Glory of God, but she does not neglect us poor ones, and she embraces with her compassion the whole earth and all the faithful. This Spotless Mother of His the Lord gave to us. She is our joy and our hope!
-St. Silouan the Athonite


Most-holy Theotokos save us!
