Today the churches on the New Calendar are celebrating the Feast of St. Panteleimon, the Healer and Great Martyr. May he provide healing to all those who suffer illnesses of soul and body, and grant them healing on behalf of our Lord!
"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.
