U svemu što susretneš u Pismu traži smisao reči da bi proniknuo u dubinu misli Svetitelja i sa većom tačnošću je razumeo... Čitanju Božanskog Pisma ne pristupaj bez molitve i traženja pomoći od Boga... Molitvu smatraj ključem za istinsko razumevanje onoga što je napisano u Božanskim Pismima“. (Prepodobni Isaak Sirin, Slova, 1, 85)

ΟΙ ΑΓΓΕΛΟΙ ΤΟΥ ΦΩΤΟΣ: Γιατί λέμε «Υπεραγία Θεοτόκε, σώσον ημάς»

Γιατί λέμε «Υπεραγία Θεοτόκε, σώσον ημάς»;

Την επίκληση «Υπεραγία Θεοτόκε, σώσον ημάς» πολλοί την παρεξηγούν. Νομίζουν ότι δι’ αυτής η Θεοτόκος κηρύσσεται ως κύρια πηγή σωτηρίας, αξίωμα που ανήκει μόνο στον άχραντο τόκο της, τον Θεάνθρωπο Κύριο. Γι’ αυτό αντικαθιστούν την επίκληση, που θεωρούν δογματικά εσφαλμένη, με άλλη: «Υπεραγία Θεοτόκε πρέσβευε υπέρ ημών». Η αντικατάσταση αυτή, ορθή στο νόημα και τη διατύπωσή της, δεν έρχεται ωστόσο σε αντίθεση προς την πρώτη επίκληση. Και οι δύο εκφράζουν το ίδιο πράγμα. Κατά τη δογματική πίστη…
