Even brighter than the sun. Virgin Theotokos, by your grace light an everlasting lamp of faith, the faith of Christ in our country, so that a darkness of disbelief would even brighten up. It will shine on the darkness of any disbelief. Would rejoice bringing thanksgiving to Christ, the man loving One, Who gives all the most mercy.
Come faithful ones, to brightly celebrate the all honored image of the Mother of God. Mirachlous appearance, and deriving grace from it, let us tenderly cry out to the Original: Mary the Theotokos, the Mother of God Blesed.
