MOLEBEN TO THE MOTHER OF GOD

Moleben of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a modification of the ancient Paraklys, a special church function composed of tropars, kondaks and irmoses.
Moleben to the Blessed Virgin originated at the beginning of the 20th century in Western Ukraine and became a beloved church function in honor of the Mother of God, It is used every Wednesday and throughout the whole month of May.
It was composed by Father Meletius Lonchyna.
We present the most significant prayers included in the Moleben.
