The Dormition of the Theotokos (Fr. Bob’s wisdom)

“…The Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos is the celebration of the fact that all human beings
are “highly exalted” in the blessedness of the victorious Christ, and that this high exaltation has already
been accomplished in Mary the Theotokos. The feast of the Dormition is the sign, the guarantee, and the
celebration that Mary’s destiny is the same as all those of “low estate” (Lk. 1:48) whose souls magnify the Lord, whose spirits rejoice in God the Saviour, whose lives are totally dedicated to hearing and keeping the Word of God which was given to us in Mary’s Child, the Saviour and Redeemer of the world…”

Archpriest Robert Stephen Kennaugh. August 15, 2005
