The Mother of God--the throne of the King

It is fitting that [our Most Holy Theotokos] stands not just beside God, but on His right hand; for where Christ sat in Heaven, namely, on the right hand of the Majesty, there she now stands --- having ascended from earth to Heaven.  Nor is this solely because no one longs for Christ as she does, and no one is so longed for in return --- which would be in accordance with the laws of nature; but because she is truly His throne.  And where the King sits, there stands the throne.
