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

Fifth Sunday of Great Lent: Commemoration of Mother Mary of Egypt (March 29)

Through thee, the divine likeness was securely preserved, O mother Mary; for thou didst carry the cross and follow Christ. By example and precept thou didst teach us to ignore the body, because it is perishable, and to attend to the concerns of the undying soul. Therefore, doth thy soul rejoice with the angels. (Apolytikion in Tone 8)

Saints of the Day

Venerable Hilarion the New; Apostle Herodion of the Seventy; Venerable Stephen of Triglia

Thought for the Day

"Uphold in your life all the Christian virtues and the example of the saints, especially the Holy Life of our Master and Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Theotokos. Only with this Spirit will our Lent be accepted and only with this kind of Lent will our lives be purified and only with this armor of purification will we be conquerors." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
