All who know God, will know the [Mother of
God/Panaghia/Theotokos] as the one who holds Him, Whom nothing can contain; and
all who sing God's praises, will hymn her after God. She is the cause of
what preceded her, the protectress of what comes after her, and she procures
eternity. She is the Prophets' theme, the Apostles' starting point, the
martyrs' mainstay, and the teachers' foundation.
