Dormition 2009. Explanation Of The Dormition Troparion. Audio Homily.


In giving birth thou didst preserve thy virginity, /
in thy dormition thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. /
Thou wast translated unto life, /
thou who art the Mother of Life. //
And by thine intercessions dost thou redeem our souls from death

One Response to “Dormition 2009. Explanation Of The Dormition Troparion. Audio Homily.”

  1. Father, thank you!

    May I ask a question: as I knew, this Feast is (in English) called Dormition, and also Assumption. Though the meanings of these words are different, anyway these 2 words are used naming this Feast, and earlier I was more familiar with “Assumption”. But I noticed that you & your parishiners use only “Dormition”. I also new Easter more than Pascha, but I guessed that maybe Easter is more catholic, this is why the word “Pascha” is used in Orthodox Church. But what is the reason of using only the word “Dormition”? This is not maybe vital, but still I got interested…

    Thank you.
