Conception of St. John the Baptist (September 23)

Rejoice, O barren one, who had not given birth; for behold thou hast conceived clearly the one who is the dawn of the Sun Who was about to illuminate the whole universe, blighted with sightlessness. Shout in joy, O Zacharias, crying in favor, Verily, the one to be born is a Prophet of the High. (Apolytikion in Tone 4)

Saints of the Day

Martyrs Trophimos, Dorymedon, Savvatios and Susanna; Hieromartyr Januarios of Benevento and his companions; Theodore, prince of Smolensk, and his sons David and Constantine, wonder workers of Yaroslav; Theodore of Tarsus, archbishop of Canterbury

Thought for the Day

When the torturer asked the Holy Martyr Sabbatius who he was and what his rank was, he replied: "My rank and dignity and homeland and glory and wealth is Christ, the Son of God, Who lives forever, and by Whose providence the universe exists and is governed."
