- According to the tradition of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the introduction of the Miracles of St. Mary must be read before any other reading from the book. There are two types of introduction. The longer one presented in this manuscript is read every Sunday and on the feast of St. Mary. The introduction of the Miracles of St. Mary is also known as the Book of Order, which discusses how the book of the Miracles of St. Mary came to Ethiopia. In addition to its introduction about the honor of St. Mary and her miracles and the importance of reading her miracles, the book also lists the 33 feasts of St. Mary. Based upon the method of andmeta commentary, the author tries to comment on the introduction and points out the importance of honoring her feast and hearing the reading of the miracle. The author also explains the severity of the anathema of the fathers on those who have not followed this order.
