The Dormition (Falling Asleep) of the Theotokos, the Most-Holy Birth-Giver of God

Celebrated August 15th
Taken from The Prologue from Ochrid

The Lord Who, on Mt. Sinai, commanded by His Fifth Commandment: "Honor your father and your mother" (Exodus 20:12), showed by His own example how one should respect one's parent. Hanging on the Cross in agony, He remembered His mother and indicating to the Apostle John, said to her: "Woman behold your son" (St. John 19:26). After that, He said to John: "Behold your mother" (St. John 19:27).
