behold the holy Virgin


Jans Sint Geertgen c.1480

We behold the holy Virgin, a shining lamp appearing to those in darkness; for, kindling the Immaterial Light, she guideth all to divine knowledge, she illumineth minds with radiance, and is honored by our shouting these things...

From the Akathistos to the Mother of God.
