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


Adam fell among thieving thoughts

4th Sunday in Lent
Vespers on Sunday Evening 
Apostika verse Tone 6

Adam fell among thieving thoughts: his mind was robbed, his soul wounded, and he lay naked with none to help.  The priest that was before the Law did not attend to him, the Levite that came after the Law did not look upon him,  Thou alone hast helped  him, O God who camest not from Samaria but from the Theotokos: glory be to Thee.
