Mary, the Ever-Virgin Mother of God, Theotokos
Holy Assumption or Dormition is the day of remembrance of St. Mary's death. In this sermon, the gifts of femininity are discussed along with the story and festival of St Mary.
Our Orthodox Christian view of St Mary sets us apart from other Christians but not from the humanity and divinity afforded us.
The sermon uses the scripture readings from the Malankara lectionary.
This sermon given on Sunday, August 16, 2009 by Fr John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
