Christmas Eve Marian Devotion

I have to run out the door to work but I figured I'd let St. Athanasius do the talking for me and remind us of a central (not THE central) figure in the Christmas story, that's right a little holiday Marian devotion from the Father of Orthodox Theology:

"It becomes you to be mindful of us, as you stand near Him Who granted you all graces, for you are the Mother of God and our Queen. Help us for the sake of the King, the Lord God Master Who was born of you. For this reason you are called 'full of Grace'..." (373 St. Athanasius)

Merry Christmas.
