Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day

Translation of St. John the Theologian (September 26)

O Apostle John, speaker of divinity, the beloved of Christ God, hasten and deliver thy people powerless in argument; for he on whose bosom thou didst lean accepteth thee as an intercessor. Beseech him, therefore, to disperse the cloud of the stubborn nations, asking for us safety and the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 2)

Saints of the Day

Proto-martyr Thekla, equal-to-the-Apostles; the commemoration of the wonder-working icon of the Theotokos of the Myrtle Tree; New-mart Ahmed; Venerable Nicander of Pskov; Venerable Silouan of Athos; the synaxis of all saints of Alaska

Thought for the Day

St. John Chrysostom says of the wonderful Christian heroine and Saint Thekla: "It seems to me that as I see this blessed virgin, in one hand she offers Christ virginity, and in the other hand, martyrdom."
