The Feast of the Dormition

Today was the Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos according to the Church Calendar. On this Feast Orthodox Christians remember the repose of the Theotokos. This event is commemorated in the Holy Land with a procession from Jerusalem to Gethsemane to the Church of the Dormition in which lies the empty tomb of the Theotokos. A sermon on the Dormition by Saint Gregory Palamas can be found here. A description of the icon of the Dormition can also be found here.
