Entrance of the Theotokos

Joyous Feastday!!
 Troparion – Tone 4

Today is the prelude of the good will of God,

of the preaching of the salvation of mankind.

The Virgin appears in the Temple of God,

in anticipation proclaiming Christ to all.

Let us rejoice

and sing to her:

“Rejoice, O Fulfillment of the Creator’s dispensation!”
