Second Wednesday of the Great Fast



APOSTICHA OF WEDNESDAY IN THE SECOND WEEK
OF THE GREAT FAST
C
Matins, Tone  7

Through Thy Cross, O Lord, Thou hast destroyed the death that came into the world when Adam ate from the forbidden tree in Paradise. Through this present Fast do Thou deliver us from every pleasure that corrupts the soul; and, we entreat Thee, count us worthy to labour for the Food which endures unto eternal life, that we may obtain crowns of everlasting joy, which Thou hast prepared for those who truly fast.
