Agni Parthene (O Virgin Pure)

Prayers

Thanks to @StefanoVP2013 for introducing me to the Agni Parthene (O Virgin Pure), an Orthodox hymn. He told me that it's his favorite Catholic prayer now!

What I have learned is that it was written by Saint Nektarios of Aegina. According to Tradition, the melody was composed by the angels themselves. This song was originally written in Greek, and was translated into many languages, including Church Slavonic, English, Serbian and Arabic.

I agree with @StefanoVP2013 -- it's a beautiful hymn. See for yourself!
