Mother of the Light: Prayers to the Theotokos

$21.00

Mother of the Light: Prayers to the Theotokos

…translated by the V. Rev. Archimandrite Maximos Constas, is a collection of 13 prayers and 3 canons to the Mother of God. The prayers, originally written in Greek, are ascribed to St Ephraim the Syrian (and are the first published English translations of the Greek Ephraim in 300 years). The canons are the works of St Theodore the Studite, St Methodios of Constantinople, and St John of Euchaita (Mauropous). The prayers and canons are united by their spirit of compunction, praises of the Theotokos, and entreaties for her intercessions and deliverance.

A brief, but powerful, introduction accompanies the translation that addresses the place of the Theotokos within the Orthodox Church, and the spiritual and historical importance of the translated prayers and canons.

Beautifully manufactured, Mother of the Light, is a round back hardcover, sewn bound, and offset printed on 100gsm Munken paper. It features a beautifully debossed cover, decorative endpapers, two page marker ribbons, and original artwork.

    • BEAUTIFUL PRAYERS TO THE MOTHER OF GOD
      Fr. Ian Shipley
      on
      I highly recommend this beautifully done book of prayers to the Mother of God. Archimandrite Sergius of St. Tikhon's Monastery once said that the hallmark of Orthodoxy is a deep veneration for the Mother of God. This book offers Christians many opportunities to deepen that relationship. She is our intercessor, protector, and the Mother of our Life. I hope many more people enjoy the shelter that She brings through these prayers composed by the Saints.
