Leavetaking of the Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos Into the Temple

Troparion — Tone 4

Today is the preview of the good will of God, / Of the preaching of the salvation of mankind. / The Virgin appears in the temple of God, / In anticipation proclaiming Christ to all. / Let us rejoice and sing to her: / Rejoice, O Divine Fulfillment / Of the Creator’s dispensation!

Kontakion — Tone 4

The most pure Temple of the Savior: / The precious Chamber and Virgin; / The sacred Treasure of the glory of God, / Is presented today to the House of the Lord. / She brings with her the grace of the Spirit, / Which the angels of God do praise. / Truly this woman is the abode of Heaven!
