Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day

Sunday of the Pharisee & Publican: Lenten Triodion Begins (February 21)

Almighty Lord, I have known the effectiveness of tears; for they snatched Hezekiah from the doors of death, and saved the sinning woman from her chronic iniquities. And as for the Publican they justified him more than the Pharisee. Wherefore, I implore Thee to number me among them, and have mercy upon me. (First Vesperal Doxasticon in Tone 8)

Saints of the Day

Venerable Martinian of Palestine; Apostles and Martyrs Aquila and Priscilla; Eulogios, patriarch of Alexandria; Venerable Simeon (Nemanja) the myrrh-streaming, prince of Serbia and founder of Hilandar monastery on Athos

Thought for the Day

Just before his death, St. Simeon the Myrrh-gusher summoned St. Sava, placed his hands on him, and blessed him saying: “My beloved child, light of my eyes, comfort and protector in my old age! Behold, the time of our separation has arrived. Behold, the Lord is releasing me in peace. But you, my child, do not mourn because of our separation. For parting is the common cup of each and all; here we part from one another, but we will meet there, where there is no separation.”
