Mystery at the Death of St Mary - Part 1
The death of St Mary, mother of the Lord is also called her the "falling asleep" or dormition. It is also called her assumption. Using the ancient texts upon which this festival period is based, Fr John Brian will explore the mystery and the power of the reported events surrounding her departure from this world. Much of the power of Orthodox Christian tradition can be traced to this festive remembrance.
This sermon given on Sunday August 17, 2008 by Fr John Brian Paprock
