"Is that Orthodox?"
Here's the text in Greek:
Θεοτόκε Παρθένε, χαῖρε, κεχαριτωμένη Μαρία, ὁ Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ· εὐλογημένη σύ ἐν γυναιξὶ καὶ εὐλογημένος ὁ καρπὸς τῆς κοιλίας σου, ὅτι Σωτῆρα ἔτεκες τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

(Christ is Risen, and you, o death, are annihilated!)
"Mother of God and Virgin, rejoice, Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, for thou hast given birth to the Savior of our souls."
I love it. Do you suppose that I'll be drummed out of the Roman Rite if I say that I think that I like it better than ours? It evokes some wonderful images.
