THE MARIAN PRAYER OF
SAINT SOPHRONIUS (A.D. 560-638)
(Patriarch of Jerusalem)


Truly, you are blessed among women,
for you have changed Eveís curse into a blessing;
and Adam, who hitherto lay under a curse,
has been blessed because of you.

Truly, you are blessed among women,
Through you the Fatherís blessing has shone forth on mankind,
setting them free of their ancient curse.

Truly, you are blessed among women,
because through you
your forebearers have found salvation.
For you were to give birth to the Savior
who was to win them salvation.

Truly, you are blessed among women,
for without seed you have borne, as your fruit,
him who bestows blessings on the whole world
and redeems it from that curse
that made it sprout thorns.

Truly, you are blessed among women,
because, though a woman by nature,
you will become, in reality, Godís mother. If he whom you are to bear is truly God make flesh,
then rightly do we call you Godís mother.
For you have truly given birth to God.
