Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers

holy_monday

Let those of us who have wisely finished the course of fasting And who celebrate with love the beginning of the suffering of the Passion of the Lord, Let us all, my brothers, zealously imitate the purity of self-controlled Joseph; Let us fear the sterility of the fig tree; Let us dry up through almsgiving the sweetness of passion. In order that we may joyously anticipate the Resurrection, Let us procure like myrrh pardon from on high Because the Eye that never sleeps observes all things.

O Savior, consider those of us who have appeared at the season Of Thy passion, worthy to worship also Thy Resurrection, O Eye that does not sleep. St Romanos the Melodist - Vol. I, On Joseph II
