Wishing you a Blessed New Year on this Feast of the Mother of God

Mother of God of the Life-Giving Spring by Vasiliki Oldziey of St. Elias Church, Austin, TX
Today as well as celebrating the New Year the Church celebrates the great feast of Mary, Mother of God. It is the feast of the one who bore the Christ child who became human like us so that we might share in his divinity. For that reason the Church continues to sing the praises of Mary, Virgin and Mother who is for us the God bearer (Theokotos).

The icon is from the website of the Anthiocian Orthodox Church of North America
