First Wednesday of the Great Fast



APOSTICHA OF WEDNESDAY IN THE FIRST WEEK
OF THE GREAT FAST

Matins, Tone 8
By fasting let us bring into bondage the passions of the mind, and let us gain for ourselves spiritual wings. Passing lightly through the storm raised against us by the enemy, may we be counted worthy to venerate the Cross of the Son of God, slain of His own will for the sake of the world; may we spiritually keep the feast of the Saviour’s Resurrection from the dead; going up into the mountain, with the disciples may we glorify the Son who loves mankind, for He has received all power and dominion from the Father.
