Prayer: Cyril of Alexandria

Hail, mother of God. You enclosed under your heart the infinite God whom no space can contain. Through you the Most Holy Trinity is adored and glorified, and the priceless cross is venerated throughout the universe. Through you the heavens rejoice, and the angels and archangels are filled with gladness. Through you the demons are banished and the tempter fell from heaven. Through you the fallen human race is admitted to heaven.
