Great Lent:



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)

Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day

Saturday of Lazarus the Righteous (April 4)

O Christ God, when Thou didst raise Lazarus from the dead, before Thy Passion, Thou didst confirm the universal resurrection. Wherefore, we, like babes, carry the insignia of triumph and victory, and cry to Thee, O Vanquisher of death, Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He Who cometh in the Name of the Lord. (Apolytikion in Tone 1)

Saints of the Day

Venerable Mary of Egypt; Martyrs Gerontios and Basileidos; Venerable Euthymios, wonder-worker of Suzdal

Thought for the Day

“Cry out, O sinner, with all your might, for the Lord is merciful and loves those who repent. As soon as you repent, your Father will come out to meet you and rejoice with you.” -- St. Ephraim the Syrian
