With 7pm quickly approaching here in the Eastern US, Holy Week is about to begin with the Matins service of Holy Monday. A blessed Holy Week to all, and may it lead to a Joyful and Glorious Pascha!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
