Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day

Protection of the Holy Theotokos (October 28)

O Virgin, we extol the great grace of thy Protection, which thou didst spread out like a bright cloud beyond all understanding; for thou dost invisibly protect thy people from the foe’s every assault. Since we have thee as our shelter and certain help, we cry to thee with our whole soul: Glory to thy great deeds, O most pure Maid. Glory to thy shelter most divine. Glory to thy care and providence for us, O spotless one. (Apolytikion in Tone 1)

Saints of the Day

Great-martyr Arethas (al-Haarith) and those with him in Arabia; Martyr Sebastiana of Heraclea; and righteous Elesbaan, King of Ethiopia

Thought for the Day

"Do not fear the conflict, do not flee it. Where there is no struggle, there is no virtue. Where faith and love are not tested, it is not possible to be sure if they are really present. They are proved and revealed in adversity." -- St. John of Kronstadt
