Traditional Orthodox Greeting: Christ is Born! Glorify Him!

And from her did He issue in the adopted body, He being one Son, dual in Nature, not dual in Person. Wherefore, do we confess, preaching the truth that Christ our God is perfect God and perfect Man. Therefore, O Mother who hast no groom, beseech thou Him to have mercy upon our souls.

      Dear Fr. Michael,

      It is indeed a beautiful icon! It reveals the catholicity of Orthodox Christianity.

      I found this icon on the site “Scarlet Hero” administered by Father Dimitris Kokkinas, parish priest of Saint John the Forerunner Church in New South Wales, Australia. Thank you Fr. Dimitris!
