And the Word Became Flesh

Revealing to you the pre-eternal counsel,

Gabriel came and stood before you, O Maiden,

and in greeting said:

“Rejoice, earth that has not been sown!

Rejoice, burning bush that remains unconsumed!

Rejoice, unsearchable depth!

Rejoice, bridge that leads to Heaven!

Rejoice, ladder raised on high that Jacob saw!

Rejoice, divine jar of manna!

Rejoice, deliverance from the curse!

Rejoice, restoration of Adam;

the Lord is with you!”

From the Vesperal Stichera of the Vigil of the Annunciation

    Father asked us to sing this tonight as people venerated the icon and received their blessing and bread. Her responses are so beautiful, I wish I had the music with me so I could write them here.
    Today is indeed the beginning of our Salvation!
    Rejoice O Unwedded Bride!
    A Blessed Feast Day to everyone!
    the handmaid,
    Mary-Leah
