God the Father spoke while the whole host of Heaven was listening, and said: "Before you all, I complain over giving My daughter to a man who tortures her greatly and without measure, crushing her feet in the stocks so severely that all the marrow has gone out of her feet."
The Son answered Him: "Father, she is the one I redeemed with My blood and espoused to Myself, but now she has been brutally violated."
Then the Mother of God spoke and said: "You are my God and my Lord, and Your blessed Son's limbs were enclosed within my body, who is Your true Son and my true Son. I refused You nothing on earth. Have mercy on Your daughter for the sake of my prayers."
Thereafter the angels spoke, saying: "You are our Lord and Creator; in You we possess every good thing, and we need nothing but You. We all rejoiced when Your bride went forth from You, but now we are rightly sad, because she has been given into the hands of the worst man who insults her with all kinds of mocking and abuse. Have mercy on her for the sake of Your great mercy, for her misery is very great, and there is no one to console and save her but You Lord, God Almighty."
Then God the Father answered the Son, saying: "O My Son, Your grievance is My grievance, Your word My word, Your deeds My deeds. You are in Me and I am in You inseparably. Your will be done!"
Then He said to the Mother of the Son: "Since you did not refuse Me anything on earth, I will not refuse you anything in Heaven, and your will shall be fulfilled."
Then He said to the angels: "You are My friends, and the flame of your love burns in My heart. Therefore, I shall have mercy on My daughter for the sake of your prayers."
