You are the most honorable intercessor

She was chosen by God to be the Mother of God, and to take part in the incarnation and the salvation of mankind. 

Thus, His Eminence Bishop Benjamin of Menoufia told us in his article  The Status of the Virgin  explaining to us the value of the Virgin as highlighted in the Bible. 

The Virgin was chosen by the Lord as faithful servant of the temple  So the King will greatly desire your beauty;

Because He is your Lord, worship Him.  (Psalms 45: 11) The angel told her: “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” Elizabeth also said to her: Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? Even the Virgin Mary said “My soul magnifies the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.

The Virgin has become a second sky once the Son of God has taken flesh from her. Her unique qualities gathered in one person that she became intercessor of human race as a loving mother. We praise her saying  You are the most honorable intercessor  We asks her to pray for the Lord to forgive us our sins. We ask her to spread joy and lead us to repentance.
