After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Sts. Peter & Paul Model of Repentance

Stichera at Little Vespers tone IV
Thou hast provided the sinful with a model of repentance: 
Thy two apostles. 
For the one denied Thee at the time of Thy suffering, 
yet repented, 
while the other opposed the preaching of Thee,
but later came to believe. 
And both are preeminent among the assembly of their peers, 
O Almighty Jesus,  Savior of our souls.
