DEC 26: SYNAXIS OF THE THEOTOKOS

icons-theotokos_04 DEC 26: VESPERS OF SUNDAY & FROM THE VESPERS FOR ST. STEPHEN – 6:30 PM.

The day after most major feasts in our calendar is dedicated to the person who is in the “2nd role” in the action of the Feast. In this case, although Christmas is clearly about Christ, His Blessed Mother has the next place of honor. A synaxis is an “assembly,” and indeed we come together on this day after Christmas to continue our glorification of our Lord’s birth, and today, in a special way, of his mother, the Theotokos and ever Virgin Mary .
