October 28: The Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos

"Wherever thy Protection casteth its shadow, O all-immaculate Virgin, thence is the might of the devil driven away; and every faithful human who calleth thereon is saved. Wherefore, as we hasten to its lightning-like brilliance, we are made beautiful with the sprinklings of the Spirit, and are made fragrant with the sweet scent of grace; and we rejoice spiritually, drawing forth the glittering lightnings of its miracles; for thy Protection’s well-spring of blessings is inexhaustible, and the stream of healings therefrom is bestowed without being spent. Hence, we earnestly pray: Shelter us at the hour of judgment, O all-compassionate Lady, and redeem us, lowly as we are, from the everlasting torments; for by thy mediation nothing is impossible."

- Doxastikon from Orthros for the Protection
