The chant, in English:
"It is truly right to bless thee, O Theotokos,
ever blessed, and most Pure, and the Mother of our God.
More honorable than the cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the seraphim.
Without corruption thou gavest birth to God the Word.
True Theotokos, we magnify thee."
- From the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
Hail Mary, true Church, true Bride of the Holy Trinity, true Body of Christ! Hail, City of God, Throne of the King, Temple of the Spirit; Queen of Apostles and Queen of Israel, Hail! Our destination, and our joy, may we find Christ our God in you at our end.
The meaning of the Byzantine Catholic phrase "More Spacious Than The Heavens" lies in the fact that Mary All-Holy is a world, nay, a cosmos to herself, THE cosmos, the decisive New Creation that her Son shares in, in His human nature. Under various types, the Scriptures reveal her as the New Jerusalem, the Church Herself, wherein God dwells and makes Himself present. In her womb is the Paradise, the Garden, where she, the Last Eve, and the Last Adam communed for nine months in union unspeakable, wherein by Grace there was no hint of the serpent nor stain of sin. She is the one who we will dwell in forever, as we contemplate the Face of Christ our God. She is the one who even now can be found in the heart of all Catholics, for we are members of her, sharing her relationship with the Triune God, spiritually, and physically by being the Body of Christ in her.
Did God ever say to one of the angels, You are my Son, I have begotten you this day? And again, He shall find in me a Father, and I in him a Son? Why, when the time comes for bringing his first-born into the world anew, then, he says, Let all the angels of God worship before him.
- Hebrews 1:5-6
And the Temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in his temple the Ark of his testament... And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars...
- Revelation 11:19; 12:1
