About the last days of the virgin, we learn only from Tradition. It’s a shame, but understandable. To record the death of my Mother – scary. To fix It, the resurrection is incomprehensible. Sounds the tradition regarding the Dormition of the blessed virgin Mary as a fairy tale, and in fact – differently and cannot be. Mother must not die.

About the mother of God to write difficult as difficult to write about mother. The relationship with the mother – blood, milk, natural, and the sanctity of motherhood is the same blood and natural. Bad, unlucky, cruel, drinking mother – grief. Loving and caring is happiness. “If mother is still alive, lucky you…” – as sung in plain song.
From Rolan Bykov is the short film “here I would never come back,” and scarier it seems to remove whatever it is is very difficult. The plot – a hopeless and cruel. Little daughter drinking and dissolute women, regularly beating and swearing child, runs away from his mother into the woods, where playing dolls and stuffed animals, repeating what he sees in her unfortunate family. The film ends with the girls scream “here I would never come back!” and her leap into the abyss.
About the same thing – a recent film by Andrey Zvyagintsev’s “Dislike”. Abandoned divergent parents and the child leaves home and disappears. Not even goes missing – simply vanishes from this world, which it is absolutely not necessary: the father is building and running a parallel family, the mother also establishes privacy makes a fashionable styling of hair, posts photos to Instagram, and only the boy’s disappearance makes parents even do not come to terms, and just start to do something together.
Millions of these children. They are met in children’s homes – they are almost can easily tell how mother was beaten or brought into the house of men that they were beaten, they were horrified to hide in a corner and close my eyes with your palms at the word “mother”, they await the return of mothers that had come for them, they hope to ask each the woman coming: “are You my mother?”.
Let’s be honest – women who have given birth to these children, they do not mother. At least, not one of those mothers, about whom they sing songs and read poems which on the Eighth of March. These women have warped the sanctity of motherhood, turning it into an ugly excrescence on his own soul and the souls of their crippled children.
And then will come to the rescue She Is a Mother That never dies
The feast of the assumption can be considered as the Day of Protection of abandoned children, the Orthodox Mother’s Day. Because there is a Mother Who will never leave. She will squeeze it to heart, regret, never hurt, not going anywhere and will never, ever die.
You will not die. Each of us have or had to go through this terrible time, when the best mother, the one, gone forever. Children hurt we will cry and call her back to us, to the earth, to touch her palms to press against the cheek, drop to her Breasts, to bury my face in her hair. And she will return only in dreams and memories.
And then will come to the rescue She Is a Mother That never dies. She is not the “mother archetype”, not a symbol, Her motherhood is written in the gospel, and if we trust him, we understand the doctrine of the virgin Mary.
It is mentioned in Scripture only a few times. The first time we read about Her in the beginning of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, which tells of the birth of the Savior from the Holy spirit. Here She appears humble and meek Girl who accepts the will of God, with a strong and fearless heart, not afraid of human society. Then visit Elizabeth. Here we have before us a caring friend coming to support native soul, to rejoice with her.
Another episode – Mary and Joseph looking for Jesus the Boy in Jerusalem. Every mother, ever seeking for her child even in safe shopping Mall, understand Her fear. But if She condemns the Son, remaining in the Temple? “Child, what have You done to us?” softly She asks. Grabs a belt that does not scream: “go Home now!” not weighed slap. It accepts and respects the interests of the maturing Son. She only asks Him not to leave Her for good.
He adopts Her all humanity
His first miracle Christ performs, at the request of the Mother – turning water into wine at the wedding. A simple enough request, so humane, so obviously, She and this young family, and guests trying to be a caring mother.
Next time we’ll meet Her in strange circumstances: in the third Chapter of the gospel of Mark She is with other family members comes to his Son, but He seems to not accept It: “Behold My mother and My brothers,” He says about the listeners. Critics say Jesus disowned his Mother. But the Evangelical context suggests that, instead, He lifts His students up to Her level.
They are close to Him, like a Mother. She just stands humbly beside.
The last time we see Her at the cross, and it was there that She becomes the Mother of us all. “Behold your Mother – behold Your son” – from last forces, dying from heat and pain, says the Saviour to the Mother and student. Humanly takes the last earthly FILIAL duty – this, by the way, we realize the groundlessness of assumptions that the virgin Mary had other children: indeed, in this case it would not make sense to assign It to the student. Godly- He adopts Her all of humanity, all of us – His disciples.
And about the last days of the virgin, we learn only from Tradition. It’s a shame, but understandable. To record the death of my Mother – scary. To fix It Sunday (let’s call a spade a spade – Her body in the tomb was not, then, the Lord raised as risen Himself, and therefore called in the people the feast of the Dormition “of the Theotokos Easter”) is incomprehensible.
Sounds the tradition regarding the Dormition of the blessed virgin Mary as a fairy tale, and in fact – differently and cannot be. Mother must not die.
