Mary: The Living Temple

While singing to your Son, O Theotokos, we all praise you as a living temple.

For the LORD who holds all things in his hand dwelt in your womb; he hallowed and glorified you and taught all to cry to you:

Rejoice, tabernacle of God the Word!

Rejoice, saint greater than the saints!

Rejoice, ark made golden by the Spirit!

Rejoice, inexhaustible treasury of life!

Rejoice, precious crown of pious kings! 

(Akathist to the Theotokos, Prayer Book – In Accordance with the Tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Kindle Loc 2495-2499)
