The East Gate

So The Lord said to me,
‘This gate shall be shut.
It shall not be opened,
And no man shall pass through it,
Because the Lord God of Israel will enter by it;
Therefore, it shall be shut.’

Ezekiel 44:2



Prayer to the Most Holy Theotokos

Our Most Holy Theotokos

O my most blessed Queen, O Theotokos my hope, guardian of orphans, intercessor for strangers, joy of the sorrowful, protectress of the wronged: thou seest my misfortune, thou seest mine affliction; help me, for I am weak; feed me, for I am a stranger.  Thou knowest mine offence: absolve it as thou wilt, for I have no other help beside thee, no other intercessor, nor good consoler, except thee, O Mother of God.  Do thou preserve and protect me unto the ages of ages.  Amen.
