The Akathist Hymn

The Theotokos

The Akathist Hymn is offered during Great Lent to beseech and extoll the Mother of God to pray for the world. Its poetry reveals the great mystery of the miracle of the Theotokos bearing God for the salvation of the world. During these times of great trouble, we all need her prayers and protection. “Hail, O Bride Unwedded”
