[ustav] Re: Most Holy Theotokos, save us.
- In Arabic, the exclamation is:
"A-lay-ha ash-ra-foo sa-laam!"
"Upon her be sublime peace (or "the highest peace")!"
Although you may also hear (especially among Arabic-speaking 'Grecophiles'):
"Ai-ya-tu-hal fa-iq-qu qud-soo-ha wa-lee-da-til-il-la-hee kha-lis-see-na!"
"Most holy Theotokos, save us!"
It seems that there is an interesting variety of phrases in use among the language groups (Arabic, Greek and Romanian, at least) which use a pietistic
Marian exclamation on "Calling to remembrance..."
