Rod of Aaron
edited December 2020
Where exactly was the resemblance of Virgin Mary to the rod of Aaron mentioned in the Psalmody? I thought that it’s in the Sunday Theotoky but couldn’t find it.
I’ll appreciate any suggestions
The rod of Aaron budded miraculously. St. Mary, a Virgin, gave birth miraculously
A couple of mentions in the Sunday Theotokia alone:
- 7th Part: "The rod of Aaron, which blossomed, without planting or watering, is a symbol of you." (
), "Wherein is placed, the rod of Aaron, and the holy flower, of incense." (
- 8th-9th Part "You are truly exalted, more than the rod, of Aaron, O full of grace. What is the rod, but Mary, for it is the symbol, of her virginity." (
- 10th-15th Part---many mentions
Thank you very much
