Aposticha of Tuesday in the First Week
of the Great Fast
Matins, Tone 3
Let us begin, O ye peoples, the pure Fast that is our soul’s salvation. Let us serve the Lord with fear: let us anoint our heads with the oil of almsgiving, and let us wash our faces in the waters of purity; let us not use vain repetitions in our prayers, but as we have been taught, so let us cry: Our Father, who art in heaven, forgive us our trespasses in Thy love for mankind.
Vespers, Tone 8
