Great Lent:

REMEMBER ME, O LORD, WHEN THOU

COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM!


O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother, for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. (The Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian)



First Sunday of Great Lent: Sunday of Orthodoxy (February 25)

Thy pure image do we venerate, O good One, asking forgiveness of our sins, O Christ our God; for by Thine own will Thou didst ascend the Cross in Thy body, to save Thy creatures from the bondage of the enemy. Thou hast verily filled all with joy, since Thou didst come, O our Savior, to save the world. (Apolytikion in Tone 2)

Saints of the Day

Thought for the Day

"When children make noise in the Church we must forgive. The more we focus our attention on the prayer, the more the noise becomes for us a blessing. The Church is not only for us, but for the children. They are 'The Tomorrow' of the Church." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
