The Akathistos Hymn, the eighth and ninth strophe (5th kontakion and 5th oikos), south choir, south wall, Dečani
There is no sweeter name to the lips of Orthodox Christians than that of the Panagia (the all-Holy Mother of God). Orthodox people’s tender love for her, which nourishes them, is so deeply rooted that we are compelled to wonder why such extraordinary honor is afforded her. The first and most significant reason is that the Panagia is the person within whom was revealed all the love of God, and the salvation of world was accomplished.
