Leavetaking of the Nativity of the Mother of God

Commemorated on September 12

Troparion - Tone 4

Your Nativity, O Virgin,Has proclaimed joy to the whole universe!The Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God,Has shone from You, O Theotokos!By annulling the curse,He bestowed a blessing.By destroying death, He has granted us eternal Life.

Kontakion - Tone 4

By Your Nativity, O Most Pure Virgin,Joachim and Anna are freed from barrenness;Adam and Eve, from the corruption of death.And we, your people, freed from the guilt of sin, celebrate and sing to you:The barren woman gives birth to the Theotokos, the nourisher of our life!
