Orthodox Tidbits August: The Month of Mary
August is the month when the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Dormition, which, of course, is the
name day of our parish. Our website will honor this occasion by devoting our Orthodox Tidbit section to the
Theotokos for the entire month of August, featuring different writings about her each week.
Orthodox Christians honor Mary in many ways, first of all in the variety of ways in which we refer to her.
Theototoks literally means "God-bearer" and that Mary is the Mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ. She is also
referred to by the Orthodox Church as Aiparthenos or "Ever-virgin" and Panagia or "all holy."
